Yes

My younger brother is obsessing about

paying Father a prison visit.

He’s been gnawing the ear

off Aunt. Aunt is rightly nervous

about taking him,

I see her tremble and get flustered.

But she doesn’t like to deny her

young nephew anything.

This is an impasse.

Until Aunt looks up, and gazes

searchingly into my eyes.

Will I do this thing?

Take him?

It is repulsive to me.

I say yes.
