Switchblade Words (Louis Toliver Jr- Swartz, LA)


It seems the observation of the times is
That those men who identify themselves
As “str8” men to adhere to society
Not because that is how they truly feel
But to participate in bullying human beings…
Should spend some time in what has
Come to be called the “gay” family.
See “str8’ men are not emotionally adapted
To handle the decisions of the times alone
And thus it should be of the family interest
Of this so called “str8” man that has evolved
That he consider spending time with his gay family
So that he would toughen up to the cutting
That societal words can sometimes achieve.
Exposing the insecurity he tries to hide in himself
This unstable man has come to see only…fear
Let this “str8” man come learn from his “gay” family
So they can educate him on switchblade words
The ones, that have come to make the “str8” man weak

When I have thought about all of the ways to make the hurt stop. When I am tired of putting on my strong face for others to see. When I am tired of the tears welling up, filling already soggy eyes. When I am tired of the tears, tears that roll non-stop over my cheeks. When I don't want to hurt the ones that I love the most. When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
