Alchemy

It wasn’t her. She didn’t inspire me to be a lesbian. She didn’t turn me into a lesbian. She didn’t encourage me to be a lesbian. She didn’t make me a lesbian. I was a lesbian already. I recognised her gayness when I didn’t even consciously know what I was recognising. She did no damn […]

Little Miss Know-it-all

My meditation teacher gave the analogy tonight of going half way up a mountain, taking in the view and thinking that means you know what it’s like at the top. Remember that Spin Doctors song from the early 90s?  Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong.  I was a young teen at the time and I can […]

Stripped

I fell so hard. I feel like I’ve fallen five times and I keep making myself fall because in some ways I like the taste. I can’t any more. I never saw this coming.  You, into my life. You’re right, I am uncomfortable.  I know that makes you uncomfortable.  I’m fine with liking girls.  I’m […]
