i don’t consider myself a lesbian.
i notice cute boys on occasion.
if one approached me,
i wouldn’t say no
but is it a crime to notice hot girls too?
blame Hollywood & rock music.
without them i never would have discovered
anna paquin looks better blonde or that
anne hathaway looked hot in Rachel Getting Married.
playing a hot mess of a recovering drug addict.
speaking of rachels, evan rachel wood
would fit into the category of hot girls too.
rock music gives us fiery vixens.
amy lee gets my attention
not just because she shares my name
shirley manson gets a nod,
for more than just her fierce red hair.
what she said about cherry lips & androgyny
(too bad she shares the surname of a serial killer)
gets me thinking about kissing girls
just like the jill sobule song.
i rock a natalie portman hairstyle
& love rufus wainwright & melissa etheridge
i wear jeans & listen to indigo girls
shame on you if you think less of me
don’t be surprised if ani difranco
comes out of her little plastic castle
to give you a piece of her mind
i love Queer as Folk too
thanks in equal measure
to thea gill, gale harold &
a close friend who is destined to be
nicknamed brian forever.
not sure if this means i’m gay
but either way i’m proud
to be myself.
