“What can you live without right now?”


there seems to be this thing where “you’re poor, why are you going out to McD’s for lunch instead of staying home and cooking? see, you are rich to afford such a luxury as food!”
so, no, i’m not buying into this idea of “what can you live without?” because it’s i live with what i have because i’ve worked to get here.
2016: is this supposed to make me think of how i’m supposed to be better off with something, like too much internet or air?
i can live without a lot of stuff, the question is do i want to? no. i like what i have and not giving up anything.
2015: still stand with last year’s answer.
2014: i hate questions like this. it’s not the matter of what i can live without, it’s the matter of why the hell would i want to? how will that make me a better person or some other bullshit?





30 Days of Pride: *BONUS*

30 Days of Pride: Day 30

Why are you PROUD to be LGBTQ+?


last year i felt like a phony for doing this. i only just realized i fall on the asexual line of life, the Pulse shooting happen, and i never had sex with a woman. how can i put myself in the same boat as all the “real” gays?
but, i’m not straight. i like looking at naked women and men in drag, i keep watching these Youtube videos about being a lesbian and taking notes, and i’m just this queer little duck in this world.
i’m not the queerest and to the outside world, i am straight but i’m not.
and that’s it, that’s the line. i try to say, out loud, “i’m straight” and what comes out is “i’m not.”
so, why am i proud? if anything, i’m here to fuck with people who think i’m straight, who think what you see is what you get. i’m proud to put questions of all things before all the white, county fools i live with.
i’m here to fuck things up and i’m damn proud of that.

and i’m gonna say Bowie.
before you fight me over Bowie, that man had a lot of personas. and no matter what, he was a queer duck out there in the world. he may have been straight, but he, he, him, HIM, is a beacon for all us odd ducks to flock to. and i’ll put money that he’s got a bit more of the LGBTQA peeps then some other singers.

"how's the kittys?"



“how are the kittys?” it’s a question that is asked often.
Matthew ask how my cats are. it’s early, last week Tuesday. i’m at the store, looking for makeup for Pride.
and then he tells me the next thing that changes everything for the worse.
Shiner died. ** ***** *** ******* ** ** *** *****.  
and then everything goes so weird.
i met him twice, i think and he had soul piercing blue eyes and a rawness to him.
but he’s Matthews’s good friend and Matthew talked about him all the time and…
and i tried to go on my day of shopping with Mom.
Matthew calls me the next day and we talked and i tell him i can make it to the funeral tomorrow and then i call him back and tell him i’ll be there today.
and i throw together outfits for the vitiation and the funeral and something to wear there and get Kelly’s old car, with $60 Mom gave me, and make my way there.
i check into the hotel room. i find Star Trek and mute it while i watched The Handmaiden’s Tale on my tablet.
Matthew shows up and he’s a mess.
it pours down rain while we drive to Lebanon. we get lost but find the funeral parlor.
i hated the place. it was way to city for me and made me miss Morton’s.
i couldn’t look at him in that coffin. i couldn’t bring myself to let that be the last memory of him, laying in that box.
i sat in a corner and Matthew talked to everyone. the whole time i was down there, he kept rattle off names of classmates, wanting to get in touch with them to make sure they knew Shiner had died.
get back to the hotel room and we sleep.
wake up, check out, i demanded to be fed before the funeral, and back to Lebanon.
the first preacher was fine. the 2nd one was Matthew’s old baseball coach and i hated it. too much on the ideal of a happy afterlife, not enough about the life we are missing.
Matthew was a pallbearer. he kept saying it was the lest he could do.
and then we drove out to buttfuck to bury him. turned off the paved road onto the gravel road, that’s how far out we got.
back to Lebanon for Taco Bell before we drove back to my car and i drove back home.
i was there for a bit over 24 hours.
and i’m still crying over this lost, this life that was not a part of mine but part of someone i love.
and i’m mad.
i’m mad that he won’t be in my wedding party.
i’m mad there’s no further where he’s there, playing with my children.
i’m mad at the idea of his mother, standing in his apartment, wondering what to do with his dirty socks and leftovers in his fridge.
i’m made that i sat in the corner of and cried so much that Matthew’s parents asked me if i was ok.
i’m made that i’m the one that’s here to take care of Matthew. i have to deal with a broken boyfriend and he’s just fucking dead.
i’m mad that i keep playing this out only with Colt in the coffin and how i want to go first because i don’t want to live in a world without the loves of my life.
i’m just mad it was such a stupid way to die and such a waste and what the hell is the point of anything anymore?
