…monster

by Gerard Lebel

 

grandmother married a monster…
a fair haired Norwegian man
I called Uncle Dan,
who instructed me to touch him…
you know… down there.
I was ten… 
I stood immobilized…
unable to catch my breath
and frightened half to death.

grandmother married a monster…
a beer bellied, drunk of a man
I called Uncle Dan,
who seized my hand and placed it… 
you know… down there.
I was eleven…
I stood transfixed…
unable to catch my breath
and frightened half to death.

grandmother married a monster…
a sad, pathetic excuse for a man
I called Uncle Dan,
placing his mouth on mine, he fondled me…
you know… down there.
I was twelve…
I stood defiant…
screaming, kicking and catching my breath;
I frightened him half to death.
