Reluctant Guest

Reluctant Guest

Reluctant guest in urban ghetto
Jostles bed for bare spot
Steamy August night
Hanging door beads separate
Step-siblings gasp
With pleasure beyond

Strong arm jabs
His youthful shoulder

The friends slip
To empty stoop
Chat of dreams
Of disillusion

His perfect memory claims
Meet disbelief and leads
To more outlandish tales
His self-trickery bleeds
Out childhood’s end.
