“Tell’em I’m gay”

Listen back,

on a phone call,

Listening to their breath,

rise and fall.


The sound of female fluttering,

flumoxing and flailing so.

Someone was sharing something,

I was too removed to know.


But it sounded like a sister,

with a concern only they would know.

But when I heard the answer,

I laughed like they now know.


It shook me to my core.

with that single comment.

It never left my brain,

t’was the content context laughter.


What to say?

How to respond?

I was dumbfounded,

no word was found.
