    Poem about Gay pride

    Lie to yourself about this and you will
    forever lie about everything.

    Everybody already knows everything

    so you can
    lie to them. That's what they want.

    But lie to yourself, what you will

    lose is yourself. Then you
    turn into them.

    *

    For each gay kid whose adolescence

    was America in the forties or fifties
    the primary, the crucial

    scenario

    forever is coming out—
    or not. Or not. Or not. Or not. Or not.

    *

    Involuted velleities of self-erasure.

    *

    Quickly after my parents
    died, I came out. Foundational narrative

    designed to confer existence.

    If I had managed to come out to my
    mother, she would have blamed not

    me, but herself.

    The door through which you were shoved out
    into the light

    was self-loathing and terror.

    *

    Thank you, terror!

    You learned early that adults' genteel
    fantasies about human life

    were not, for you, life. You think sex

    is a knife
    driven into you to teach you that.
