Poem: Sometimes a Confusion

By: Robert A. Davies

confusion

1.

I have a secret
a past a love
the love past,
memories dim.

I have another secret,
a love not expressed
the young men all so handsome.

2.

Pictures up to,
anticipation
and sometimes a little
flash of confusion —

pictures of sunny days
a sort of purity restored,
fast friends together.

3.

An obedient boy’s rape
at age thirteen
for a long decade repressed
and its pictures.
