A Kind of River in Egypt

If you are a

Gay man who

Loves drag and

Only has female friends and

Has stereotypically feminine hobbies

Who’s never committed to a man

Because they just aren’t “quite ready”

Who has male privilege

And a job and a life that you know

Will be challenged by her, so you

Don’t tell anyone about her

Except for your friends at night on

Snapchat, and the like

Sharing photos of her, your

Secret delight—

But you just aren’t “quite ready”

I’m sick of pretending as if this “man”

Isn’t a woman who stole my life
