my stupidity – hazel meadows

when did you learn

that sensitive boys are gay

or masculine girls are bitchy?

who taught you

that saying your mind is impolite

or speaking up disrespectful?

was I late to class that day?

or daydreaming about

words that sound interesting

and effectively describe my cheating boyfriend?

how did you come to the realization

that every homosexual wants you

or that god

cares about your sex life?

I must have missed that textbook.

forgot to read those pages

that taught me how to fear people

who love and teach and create

and do all the things that you do.

I have never been so glad

to have missed out on learning

and be such a stupid inclusive person.

maybe I do have something

to thank that cheating boyfriend for.

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
