Gay Pride 3

Did you know that Sodom and Gomorrha Was the location for the garden of Eden? The privileged few, the farmers who reared livestock, Destroyed by the wrath of god…… Over here in San Francisco, there is no fire and brimstone Only the descendants of Sodom and Gomorrah, Free from eternal damnation, Walking on genderless asphalt-paved…

Queer

Adam and Steve The warriors of a de-facto war The pink flowers with anthers and pollen That will never procreate Possessing only the democracy Of playing games of recreation In half-lit rooms.

The Straight Man (Partly Erotica)

The straight man is convulsed with electricity, And if in this day and age lobectomies could be conducted The gay patrol would jump on the wagon. Right before they convulse him They look at him with apathy – straight The type that makes love missionary In an enclosure of visages, so unlike a wild animal,…
