An Awkward Moment
When you came into my office tonight you told me that you had read
My anti-gay pieces in American Thinker and were hurt because you are gay.
How would I know?
I don’t look for those things regardless
Of what I write.
I thought about it
And realized that I am living in a politically correct world
Where everything original is wrong.
I am spare,
I am different,
I am out there among the planets.
The riddle of the Great Sphinx of Egypt is that everything that was wrong
And right will be wrong again as the winds shift in the desert
And the lion and the man lie down in the desert sand.
Perhaps I am wrong for being honest.
People don’t like it.
I tell it like it is
Unlike the liberals who pretend that they are liberal
So that they can take credit for wearing goody two shoes,
Sandals covering their true toes.
They tolerate you and call it open-mindedness.
They hate themselves for lies they don’t understand.
Hey, you are a good guy despite
Against my prejudice.
I like you as a person not as an opinion.
I don’t care that you told me that you are gay.
You are not gay.
You are who you are with a dash of gayness.
I don’t relate to that part of you.
I am made awkward by your gayness but it is not mine
And doesn’t matter.
Before my father died we didn’t discuss politics.
He was liberal.
That was one millionth of the man he was.
Silence was the answer.
Gayness is too important to you when it should be irrelevant.
If men can’t find gayness ugly I can’t find heterosexuality beautiful.
You are not ugly.
You are what you are which is you and that is the long and short of it.
A friend is a friend no matter the ideology of the masses.
I stick to the nothingness of saying whatever I want
What doesn’t matter because it matters in some secret pocket
Of the heart where friendship folds its handkerchief.
The sadness of hard politics is a formal occasion.
Take off your top hat and let the give and take of the world go by.
