# The Desk # - Poem by Marvin Brato Sr

Desk I have none

in the place I work

for I do not own it

but a common one

where I do my job



The desk is a witness

to all the things I perform

as I meet with volunteers

who come for HIV counseling



All the revelations

or secrets being told

remains on the lone desk

as covenant of confidentiality



Consent form is sign on the desk

and its where I extract the blood

then on the third day I give results

to the individuals without pretense



Yes, on the same desk tears fall

anger dominate and denial reign

yet later on friendship is created

as trust slowly set the foundation
