Brick House

I am
a pretty liberal guy.
Nothing much can
shock me.

And yet one night
I found myself
siding with
the knuckle draggers
at the bar.

A man walked in
who must have been
at least 6’6″
and well over 300 pounds,
dressed in drag.
A bruiser
in a dress.

Everyone kept shooting him
“What the fuck” looks,
and I found myself
doing the same.
I couldn’t help it,
I was just

He walked out
a while later,
and I just felt terrible.
Why was I being so
ignorant and intolerant?
I support gay marriage
and everything
in between.
Why would I DO that?

Then I figured it out.

He wasn’t my type.
I hate tall women.
