All Apologies

Mary Poppins is a series of eight children’s books written by P. L. Travers and published over the period 1934 to 1988. Mary Shepard was the illustrator throughout the series. The books centre on magical English nanny Mary Poppins. She is blown by the East wind to Number 17 Cherry Tree Lane, London, and into the Banks’s household to care for their children. Encounters with pavement-painters and shopkeepers and various adventures follow until Mary Poppins abruptly leaves—i.e., “pops-out”. Only the first three of the eight books feature Mary Poppins arriving and leaving. The later five books recount previously unrecorded adventures from her original three visits. As P. L. Travers explains in her introduction to Mary Poppins in the Park, “She cannot forever arrive and depart.”

this description mirrors my adventures over the last 8 years. I have been continuously gobsmacked by the role of program administrators being in opposition to client centered care. My most recent dalliance has seen intakes and subsequent discharges mirroring the use of a box of kleenex and a nearby waste can. I am unable to endure this any longer. I don’t see myself as overly sensitive, but I do believe it takes time and effort to help people recover from addiction.

I’m interested in being a force for good in the middle of an epidemic-not capitalizing from it. And I don’t think I want to be a part of any program that exploits people that are ill.

What else should I be
All apologies
What else should I say
Everyone is gay
What else should I write
I don’t have the right
What else should I be
All apologies

In the sun
In the sun I feel as one
In the sun
In the sun

Married
Buried

I wish I was like you
Easily amused
Find my nest of salt
Everything is my fault
I’ll take all the blame
Aqua seafoam shame
Sunburn with freezer burn
Choking on the ashes of her enemy

In the sun
In the sun I feel as one
In the sun
In the sun

Married
Buried

Yeah, yeah yeah yeah

All in all is all we are.
