Free to Remember

There is a fraction of a second when
Relationships change
A platonic ease is lost
When you stare below
My neck
When you wink or make a meaty
Joke because a woman is near
enough to hear
You may be older or younger
There is a touch that is
Less than friendly or
More than friendly
If it was unintended
Yet you felt the primordial
Pleasure of a man with a woman
Or a man feeling machismo
Over the fragility of a woman
Then do not call it “Brotherly”
And insult my living brothers …
We can try to be friends or enemies
You are free to forget
I am free to remember
