Your gay question(s), Kid.  I don't have any unsolved issues concerning why gays are gay and not straight.  You seem to, but perhaps I am mistaken and you just come to this discussion to create mischief?

Right

This is because you are all-knowing.

Were I all-knowing, Kid, I would be a lot better off here at the end of my life than I am.  Alas, I struggle just to know myself.  That self continues to dismay me as I discover yet another hidden fault or wrong belief that I then have to dig out by the roots. Keeps me busy.

Ancient NYTimes Urban Haiku History


gregoryhinejr from the Times site
is 10 times the haikuist you are


Now that’s interesting…

Will wonders never cease!!!

Talk about a Voice from the past.

I thought I was the only Haiku Queen in Elba.

But low & behold Detective_Winslow is a Haiku Queen too…

I remember gregoryhinesjr, karlhenning & stodolka very well.

They hated me & roadytoad for posting gay haiku.

“Urban” haiku meant no gays to them.

Or lesbians or any other New York City glbtq minority.

They acted like “urban” meant RFD…

What a bunch of backward Bible Belt baboons.

And here I thought I was the only one to make copies of…

The late great NYTimes Urban Haiku Forum.

Like the haiku I posted above. It got rave reviews back then!

Purged like the Sports & Readers Group Forums.

Well, Detective_Winslow—just who are you anyway?

Odd you’d even remember the name gregoryhinesjr…

I’d say it’s a rather “queer” coincidence…

Dontchaknow?

We're Not in Kansas Anymore---Thank God!

Liberace was a fag,
Rock Hudson he was gay,
Libby tickled his keys,
While Rock kissed Doris Day,
No one wanted to be Liberace,
He wasn't like the Rock,
Candelabras and Versace,
Don't mix with guys who're jocks.


Liberace was a fag,
And it disturbed the mainstream press,
Now we know that J. Edgar Hoover,
Liked to wear a lady's dress,
See the country has come out,
It's no longer one repressed,
Still the folks in Kansas cry out,
Cause they can't stand all the stress.


Liberace was a fag,
It was so plain to see,
But it's hard to spot one now,
They're surrounding you and me,
Though its not one's personal choice,
To be lesbian, gay, and harried
By the folks who live in Kansas,
Who don't want them to be married.


Liberace was a fag,
But I'll bet you he would say,
That the folks in Kansas are
Much worse than being gay,
See, they believe the world was just created,
In a matter of 6 days,
And the 7th day they keep holy,
For promoting anti-gays.


Kansans lost their marbles and humanity
on that alleged 7th day,
Gave them up for Superstition
To which they daily pray.
In the unevolving Kansas,
No evolution theory,
No belief in nature's way,
For folks in Kansas are
Far more queery
Than anyone who's gay.

Some do

Some are coerced into their first experience

Most, I feel, are naturally pulled in that direction.


It never ceases to amaze me—how homophobes act like they know more about gays than gays do.

And homophobes have such an inordinate interest in gay matters as well.

Usually such inordinate so-called homophobic interest in gays points to one thing—a closet case.

Hollywood Babylon
—for Donotremove, Dzimas & Laurie 

I dreamed about Liberace last night—
His toupee askew and candelabra flying
Thru the air with his Mother and George
Hiding under the piano and Las Vegas
Going down in tacky neon and flames…

I dreamed about Rock Hudson last night—
Throwing one last Hollywood party by the pool
With Jane Wyman from Magnificent Obsession
In leather drag leading all the bad boyz in
One last cabaret of Miss Sodom and Gomorrah…

I dreamed about Bette Davis last night— 
Pissed off in a bitch fight with Anne Baxter
Plus George Sanders as Addison DeWitt   
Beating Clifton Webb-Waldo Lydecker’s
Brains out with a tacky beat-up Oscar.

I dreamed about Orson Welles last night—
Playing Harry Slime in The Third Man
Throwing Joseph Cotton off the Ferris Wheel
Landing on Baron Kurtz and Dr. Winkel
And Alida Valli in one big SPAT!!!     
 
I dreamed about Charles Laughton last night—
Playing the gimpy Hunchback of Notre Dame
Getting it on with Esmeralda in the belfry
Then throwing her down off the high parapets
Like a good queer Quasimodo should…

I dreamed about Miss Tricky Dick last night—
And all the crummy politicians in the closet
Playing it straight for all the rubes & Jesus freaks
While doing the down-low in the Tea Rooms
At the airports holding babies up for TV…

I dreamed about Milk and Miscone last night—
There in sad dreary San Francisco City Hall
And all those gay pride parades with my queenly 
Friends long dead and gone now, Dykes on Bikes
And fleets of happy-go-lucky gone Cadillac joy…

A Gay Couple
—for Gertrude & Alice

"On a trip to Spain with Toklas from May
until the late summer of 1912, Stein
discovered the concrete, sensual world
in sexual fulfillment."
—Ulla Dydo, "A Long Gay Book,"
   A Stein Reader

Alice isn’t just listening—
She isn’t just listening to Gertrude.
She’s typing Gertrude each morning…
She even takes typing lessons to do it.
Alice does more than just typing tho.
She publishes Gertrude too.

Plain Editions is their press—
They sell a Picasso to do it.
Or is it a Matisse or Cézanne?
Alice does more than that tho—
More than just typing…
More than publishing & listening.

Heaven forbid!!!
Oh lordy—she Lifts Belly too!
Pink Melon Joy, oh my!!!
A Long Gay Book…
Think Miss Furr and Miss Skeene—
Only better…
