i have figured out that i like boys
with decidedly average last names
and perfect grades in calculus
and long hair and effeminate features

every time i venture away from this
stereotype, i've no passion, and
these attributes are my obsession
and i only really love musicians

what i've been trying to say all along
is that i am a passionate lover, but
what is written between these lines
is that i will fight
and scream and argue
and throw books at all their lovely heads
with the same fire that they feel
in my kisses and my proclamations
