Your Book Starts Here


Lord why didn’t you give me a gay child?

I would have loved a gay child

we could have attended museum openings,

shared tickets to the ballet


A gay child would have dressed well,

remembered birthdays

held open the door

eschewed facial hair


A gay child would not have a snake tatoo

encircling his bicep

but rather like his uncle

have picked pretty symbols, (the

celtic cross was nice, the green ink

more attractive.)


A gay child would have a job

in a clean industry

instead of shoveling asphalt

cracking open a beer

sunburn across  the back of his head


Lord a gay child would have traveled with us

rather than announce

he is breeding cockroaches

to feed

the thirteen snakes

cages lining his living room.


A gay child would date

interesting boys who knew that the mother

is important

A gay child
