confused (yet right)

patricia

it’s a lovely name
for a girl

little pat

and her grandma
loves her
though leslie thinks
maybe
she loves her
too much

they don’t get on
so well
my mother
and leslie

but he dotes . . .
just dotes
on little pat

sometimes
when I look around
and don’t really
know
who I am
or what
or
how I came to be
here

I see little pat
and think
I must have done
something
right . . .

we
must have done
something
right

other times
I just feel
confused

Note: the child may have been named Gloria. Conflicting references to be resolved!
