    I meet this man the other day
    he was so cute
    just the right height
    and the right sound
    with just enough bass in his voice
    that it peeked my ears to listen

    We knew each other in high school as much
    as you can know some one when only 15
    but I know and he knew and he


    we talked about Soul Justice
    and the "food" the kids eat
    broke down Spanish in like two min'
    and we talked with out worries or judgments

    it was something I have not had in a while
    to feel that secure in myself and what I was saying and doing
    he walked on the outside like a gentleman
    or am I analyzing too much now
    he smelled right
    he smelled like her to me not a him

    we share something in common
    our birth dates, two mixed kids with mixed backgrounds
    and mixed ways

    I gave my number and hoped that he would call
    but the problem is
    I know I like women
    but he was so cute
    everything was there
    a little too much was there

    those eyes and that bottom lip
    why couldn't you be a woman...
    with breast and butch

    why could you be the women of my dreams instead of my high
    school sweet heart...

    you told me about the reunion was that an invitation
    or were we just catching up
    you remember more than I do..
    surprise
    I have a bad memory....
    will you call
    do I want you to call
    why did GOD throw you my way...
    did I miss something..
    HELP!!
    I think I like a guy.

    then I went to a bar and
    you where there, with my drink already waiting and
    the conversation that I wanted to have
    we got a little closer
    I look at you like a sister friend
    not a girlfriend
    it's funny I really like that quality in our relationship.
    But I think I like guys and I am not Lesbian
    I think I was rebelling
    I like them both I guess
    I am a confused little girl
    I am in my double pare Chango
    Help...

    That's you speaking to you.

    Listen to what you have to say with an open mind.
