ROBERT PATRICK ON BEING GAY
Heterosexual lovers obsess,
And so mate to look after babies,
But I'm overdrawn
About sex that can't spawn
About as productive as rabies.
Just what is the point of this staggering stress?
How smart are the powers that forge us?
What sense to the strain
Of desire and disdain?
How long, really, will you be gorgeous?
