At the OUTright Youth Meeting, by Scott Owens

AT THE OUTRIGHT YOUTH MEETING

They ask me if I am,
and I say, No,
but I have a son
and if he is,
I want him to know
that nothing changes
in my love for him.

And I have a daughter,
and if she is,
I want her to feel
the same free unashamed
passion I have felt
for the women I’ve loved.

And this morning a lovely girl
with green eyes and red hair
served me coffee,
and if she is,
I want her to have
cheaper insurance, lower taxes,
visitation rights,
all the benefits and privileges
committing myself to one person
has bestowed upon me
.
