Open Offerings

do not disregard
my palm
held out in charity,
not for it,
I will help
you to your feet and
smile wanly
as of there was more
I could do
but knowing
you in your pride
would never accept
and you won’t
but not from selfish vanity
your loathing of me
is real and deep
and I do understand
because you’ve taken my hand
regained erection
even as
you turn away
ashamed
