What Do They See?


The pictures I remember
"Daddy" taking must have
Surely been seen by other
Prying, ass-like eyes.

What do they see
When they look at them?
I wonder, do they see
Confusion and fear?

Or do they only see
What the pictures show?
A child, fat, naked,
Spreadeagled, trying to please?

If they could know
The thoughts behind
The image, would they
Be "turned on" still?

Or would they remember
A time when they were
Scared and confused
Like I was?

I wasn't "turned on"
By "Daddy's" urgings.
I was showing him the
"Love" he wanted to see.

Everything I did for him
Was to make him love his "son."
Did he see that, or did he
See only what he wanted to see?

Perception equals realty.
I guess I was as aroused
As he was by the camera,
Words, thoughts, deeds, actions.

But I wasn't. He knew that.
They all should know that.
There isn't "horniness" in
These pictures, only confusion.

They were the grown-ups
I was taught to respect.
Boy, did I ever!
Even at risk to myself.

They should know, they all should,
The thoughts behind the pictures.
And perhaps that would change
What they all see.
