Going Straight


admitting heterosexuality seems
a waste, there’s no intrigue in being
straight – no need for confession or
to seek eminently good reason to
explain an intention of obvious clarity;

admission to it and accessibility is
easy – hasn’t changed in years, all
ancient indices remain, as do the
same old hoary prejudices

so when gender wavering in the
cusp of contention remember you
were born – if just for the reason
becoming anything
begins with that!
