A Poem by Eshe' Allen
"

the journey...

"

years ago
Courtney
the only physically comparable
girl in school
as i knew it
asked me would i be gay
when i grew up

i said what's gay
a gay girl is
a girl who can do anything
a boy can do

i thought that was cool
okay

at home
my brother explained that
she will do
everything
a guy will do

which i had little problem with
except the taking out of the garbage
but i could handle it

no,
everything

dude, i got the garbage

she has to like girls
like boys like girls

can she
is that
i don't think

okay
i'm good


holding her as we



so i was wrong

Wow, what a journey...to take this home to your brother! What were your feelings about asking him? Just curious. Nicely done!
