The Role Model

I didn’t know
It then


I’ll never

An evening during the 90s
When my younger brother and I
Took our dog for a walk

Passing beautiful familiar homes
Of our tranquil neighborhood
New Hampshire suburb

Through snickers I to explained to him
How gay my friends looked

When they kissed their mothers

Thank God

He did not take me too seriously
