    Pink is for girls; blue is for boys. Dolls and tea sets are for girls. Toy soldiers and sports are for boys. Girls can believe in unicorns and in rainbows—and that one day they themselves will be princesses like in the fairy tales. But can a boy believe any thing alike? No. He can’t b...

    Crossing forked roads On the way to My home— fearless for once, realizing I am I the way I am and was and will be— Neglecting the fears that have been holding me down for years. Going; growing; glowing proudly Over the highway, alone; Under striped skies in Technicolor There’s somethin...

    last night: wrapped in your sinewy arms, lined with blue tendrils snaking up and down your tattooed forearms, i felt the prickling of goose bumps crawling all over my onion white arms, limp compared to yours— there were stars dappling the night skies: amethyst, turquoise, pearl, a...

    i leafed through the post early today, amber sun rays winking through curtained windows— murder, arrest, death, murder, larceny, rape, murder, war— and to my surprise one act of charity: some kid, with too much time in his unscarred hands, collected $500 for st. jude’s, ev...

    Each time I think about you I try, I try not to But I can’t help myself From falling in love with you Yet when I think about it Your touch and lips I miss I know I must let go Take this goodbye kiss Cause the truth of the matter is I can’t, I can’t love you anymore I can’t, I c...

    Dark clouds and humid air A look of I-don’t-care You call and call and call But I don’t care at all Yet you leave me breathless Oh, love, I’m restless And I can’t wait no more Just go and close the door I think I’m old enough to know That love’s a fickle game But you think ...

    Lately wondering if stars are mocking the incapability of human reasoning thinking if moon craters are as deep as the void in the human soul pondering about the flailing whips of sun resembling the inconsolable heart writhing within bone cage there's little to be said about the hope j...

    The world flashed before me As I set you on fire, Burning your sweet Jesus face With my blazing desire— Melting your heart and soul, You filthy, filthy liar. Though you cry, though you scream, I’m not the one to blame: You lived and laughed but didn’t love; Love for you was a game. ...

    The scientists in snowy white lab coats stretch ebony skin taut over a frame of synthetic steel —made in Kansas— combing a glossy pompadour, curling—up and down— the long lashes of each almond eye, manicuring the acrylic nails —electric yellow— of each thin finger, dabbing a li...

    Early this Monday morning I prayed to God but He didn’t respond: I supposed He was busy answering some other urgent prayer while listening to a myriad other prayers all at once. So I headed downtown to a nearby synagogue; the rabbi, however, told me to leave for not being Jewish: the ...

    I knew you'd be, Right from the start, The shameless one Who'd break my heart; To live and love You were never the kind; When you were gone, You left me blind— You were the breath Of fresh, cool air, One of a kind— A boy so rare; Your weightless love Left in me this ...

    You slowly strummed the steel strings of your guitar in E minor chords, while I made up words in Spanish, singing to the silver stars spangling the night around the moon’s enormous curves, alabastered and heavily ridged with spidery stretch-marks; the love song of cicadas vibrated like ...
