Portrait of a Man
By Robert J. Roe
From “Interplanes”

“I DID it, yes,” he said;
And looked at me
When I asked him
If the things they said of him were true—
His neighbors gabbling amongst themselves.        5
He looked at me:
His eyes were clear as water,
And there shone
A mystical elation on his face:
“I did it, yes,”        10
Was all he said.
