To the transgender girl dancing with a coward

It was Friday night and we were all in the fight

to go home better from the week,

but, you were out there to shine

and shake your life’s being.

I looked right through you except when I thought fleetingly

that you were quite gutsy to wear you pants so low

and your translucent top among the prudes of Colombo.

He was the only disappointment in your ensemble;

too much of a coward to love how much he loved your skin,

he hid.

When he left without saying goodbye, I saw your wilt shine;

I wish I was brave enough or that it wasn’t too lame to walk up and say

what makes you woman, was not him anyway-

your sun will remain.
