Discreet



Discreet
ni Lex Bonife


Siya ay discreet.
Boses niya'y malalim.
Daliri niya'y nakapirmi;

Siya ay discreet
Mga barkada'y basketbolista.
Mga babae'y karay karay ng kanyang matitipunong braso.

Siya ay discreet
Dahil ayaw niyang sumama sa katulad kong kumekembot
sa kanta ni Madonna

Siya ay discreet.
Sa kanyang palagiang pagsuso
bigote niya'y tumutusok sa bayag ng kanyang niluluhuran.

Siya ay discreet
Dahil kapag tinitira siya ni kumpare
Sigaw lang niya'y "idiin mo pa dude"

Siya ay discreet
Lalake at macho
kahit wala siyang bayag panindigan ang kanyang pagkatao

siya ay discreet
ang mga katakut-takot na tiisin ng aking puso
ang larawan ng aking anino

siya ay discreet
gumigiwang-giwang sa mga alon
dahil wala na siyang angkla

nice poem.

not to heavy/cerebral and easy to digest.

good for you, you were able to come out in the open

but sad to say

you're no different from others who despise people of being "gay"

Do you really think it is easy for all gay men to just throw themselves out of the closet? Proclaim to high heavens that they're gay? It saddens me that the very people who claims to fight for the rights of gay men are the ones who does not understand they're own kind. I am appalled that you do not recognize that there is diversity even in the gay community. That not everyting that applies to your kind of gay man applies to all gay people. Your poem is insulting to all gay men who struggles to find accetance and dignity in being gay but discreet.
