Poems of a Young Man: “Video Confessional” (© KPKeelan)

.

Let me barge in ( ! )

to this long-hidden

secret compartment.

This is a raid.

Up against the wall!

With any luck

I will catch myself

red-handed.

Capturing this terror

on videotape,

dare I broadcast my fear

for my rational mind to see?

Are YOU listening in?

Do you recognize yourself

in my most private mirror?

Ah! Is it YOU I have

interrupted

(so rudely!)

in the act of becoming

yourself?

.

(February 1982)

  1. This is a good poem! I am always a little surprised when I read something I wrote as a young man… and it’s GOOD.
