Lost Trust in Years

My mind was so poisoned by the war
of man and woman relations
in particular, my parents’ divorce
by the time I was seven
that when my father visited me
in the hospital bearing a stuffed animal
and stayed when they asked me to undress
and gave me a shot on my ass
I felt ashamed
and I wouldn’t talk to him for a week after that
