AN OPEN POSTCARD TO MY STRAIGHT FRIENDS

Everyday I dig a trench through my heartbeat,

crawl with my teeth in the dirt

to hold my lover’s hand on a public street.

That trench should never be just mine to dig

when your voice will always be so much safer than mine is.

In other words, this battle that you call my battle

should not be my battle as much as it should be yours.
