Love

Two palm trees

Two palm trees, tall, stand beautiful,
The background a pure blue, not a single cloud to tarnish it,
The two almost of equal height, with similar crowns,
A symmetry and order, it feels good,
But there’s something off,
Something slightly frustrating,
I notice they’re not entirely straight.
Then I hear myself think straight
And I start thinking of you and me and our love,
And I find another kind of beauty in these two trees,
A spaciousness and softness unnoticed till now,
Just as they stand here, queer,
And I wonder if completely straight palms exist at all.

Short fiction & happy Pride!

Gay Flash Fiction just published a short text of mine, “TGV to Geneva”. I recommend reading it while listening to You Wish by N.O.W.
I hope you find the text subtly sexy. I sometimes feel the shame that society still attaches to sexuality and alternate sexuality such as gay sex in particular, but I will not let it restrict me. The publication coincides with Pride, a celebration that originates in the struggle of sexual and gender minorities. When I write - gay erotica or other texts - I will write under full name.
Happy Pride!
