"Kept Image" by Andrew Demcak

from ZERO SUMMER

Kept Image

a childhood returned
this morning
mother dragging us
needy and feral-
haired

it’s my older cousin on top
draining inside of me
yesterday’s
first man
desire like pumping water

nights he sailed into me

enlisted
I was 10
pain along the shoals

but how
could I fend off
familiar skin

with what:
my almost fists
my obedient holes?
