current poetry: slanted visions

slanted choices

 

these were, it seems, slanted choices
that you gave me, hemmed and bordered
by need, though you termed  those
mostly half-fancied and unreal. it was rather
odd.  i’d known you fancied yourself
mistress of all that was ours, namegiver and guardian of the gate

or at least i thought i did.
certainly i didn’t know what to do
as, crying, you embraced me
and then ran from the room
crying that i’d betrayed you
though in truth i didn’t do anything; i was too stunned.

years later, too, i find myself wondering if…
and if i’d welcome you or not.  i don’t even recognize
that face in the photos.
