I Will Never Forget You

I will never forget you I once told you
in youthful exuberance

I remember my first car Ford
my first dog Brownie

I remember the first time I was stung
by yellowjackets

the first perch I pulled from the Guadalupe
the first poem I plagiarized

I will never forget you I once told you
who are you?

I am puzzled - why the final question mark? It's not a question but I'm sure you know that. So, what am I missing?

Don't know if this helps,Jim,but the who are you? is italicized to separate it from the rest of the poem and is supposedly said out loud by the speaker of poem to the imagined person he was to remember forever.

Never noticed the italics. Yes, that makes more sense now.
