Ashamed


Stand in
the dim room
sun goes down
on the child
who tries
to sleep before
his silhouette
slices forward
devours
like locusts
a boy
forbidden fruit
forced across
his lips
stained
with touches
he could
not refuse
until the day
came into
all darkened
places where
the boy
tried to wipe
away what
the man
left behind
or took
with him
leaving a trail
of glittering
empty skins
trembling
