Against Your Will?





Painting by Richard Moore 2020

Was it against your will


that I still 


made a pass at you


hoping that we could do


what you might want to too 


in that innocent passion that was once ours?



You were moving towards me, even if uncertainly


I was moving towards you, ambitiously 


 Yes, I retreated at your resistance


I backed off at your insistence


but guilt I still sense.


even now, when the photographs of our courtship have long since faded.



Am I a prisoner of contemporary discourse?


Am I a predator despite myself?


Am I reading too many newspapers? 



Should I surrender to the authorities?


Should I prepare for extended incarceration?

Should I ready myself for Me-Two Prison?
