Richard Scott - Admission

he asks if my poems are authentic
do I have any experience in the matter
and by this he means abuse
and by this he means have I been a victim
I tell him the truth he talks to cover my silence
the Nigerian playwright who writes only
of the Second Liberian Civil War
how trauma is a shared thread
leading to other victims of molestation
how rape is a weapon blame


still in truth I wish he hadn't asked see I
want this man my friend to see me
as pure not in any way ruined or touched
dirty a tease a liar an attention seeker
he cites Wordsworth something familiar
about tranquility and I want to ask
now that you know do you still like me
but like the boy when asked by his therapist
to say in the bathroom mirror
it's not your fault I remain dumb
