Anything That Stretches You Robert was rather attractive but didn’t have much between the ears. It became apparent early on that he had little chance of passing without special help.

If I were wrong; A closet A piece of furniture. If I were wrong; Being gay Means I am happy. If I were wrong; The cup of prayerful tears Barren, parched,...

I am a pine talisman to him— his hope and his chagrin— who bore me around his neck who wore me out, to church beneath his Jesus collared tee. I carry him in my shoulders curled, down thin gay...
