Gay Boys Taught me my Culture
Langston, James, Federico, Marsden, John
First was the Angel Gabriel, ---oops, I mean
Juan que cantaba las tristes liricas
femininas de Juarez, named for Prez
Benito--No, I'm not saying he was gay.
But who cares? No DADT protocol
here; no homophobia permitted
in this Sonnet! That's just for the Army.
Second was the ill AIDS patient next door
from my sister's apartment on Linden
down the street from UCR who smoked weed
to get hungry. And Mama sent sugar
cookies. Third was my Butch Tia y prima
China...parecen hombres---que importa?
