Fags Can’t Read - Poem by Jon Edward Walker

A gay man slept in my bed last night
he was reading comic books last I remember
before falling asleep
we’ll not really reading, just looking at the pictures.
Fags don’t read I’m told
something to do with the internal
chemistry that alters their sexual preference
also affects their ability to process
certain information visually
I tell him what’s going on in the story
so he’s not completely lost
I’m nice like that.
