Sexual Orientation

ampersand

The first time you imagine a woman naked
On mental screens, is when
You realize that, a mental picture wets your
Whole body except that little place
Where the donkey is.

And that’s how you pass the test.
That you were meant to walk the straight line
And that one small room in your household
Will never welcome a ding-dong.

A room that will only know your finger and an endoscope
And when you finally have prostate cancer
Two fingers of the urologist.

And still the gay youth becomes king
A little after his 18th birthday
He coronates himself Richard the Lion Heart

And rides the hairy donkey.
