That gay bar I never entered
so I fooled myself about myself
and all those inside and me outside
by inside myself alone and afraid
unsure and closeted (as they say)
to step outside myself
to step inside the gay bar
to admit to myself and be OUT
and true to my inside feelings
that those outside
will see and say
you are gay;
When did this happen?
When did you know?
When did you come-out?
How do you feel now,
I mean, inside. . .
