“When did you come out?”

I’m sometimes asked.


My knee-jerk response:

“I was never in.”



iiia)      I’ve knowningly been attracted to males

since I was four years old…

sucking on my three-year old cousin’s “tick-tack”

cuz I wanted to …

and it was fun.



iiib)      In the sociopolitical context,

doesn’t being “in the closet”

involve some level of self-denial?



I was never in.
