So she speaks only Spanish
Nada mas, Ni una gota de ingles
And I must express to her, "Mommy I'm
Pero no hay Palabras!
I can say, "Mama, soy Homosexual"
because it's the right word to say;
The correct word to express
Who I am.
But Spanish or English
The word homosexual (Emphasis on the word
Never has appealed to my liking.
And so I think, and think again of some other
That express the who that I am
But as much as I think
I cannot help but to think
That I should damn my native language, Spanish
And as much as I love it, I cannot avoid
but to hate it
-for the time being-
Because the only other words to chose from
Are not words but insults.
I can say, "Mama, soy maricon,
joto, chifladito, curiosito, totrillera,
-usted sabe, uno de aquellos."
I am not "one of those"
As these insults tell me.
I am not about fucking boys or wearing dresses
or acting "like a woman" or having
rammed up my ass!
There's much more to me than same-gender
I am still part of humanity!
But how do I tell my mama,
How do I make her comprehend that I am QV,
And still human,
Still a man?
How do I tell my mama
Who speaks only Spanish?
How do I make her comprehend?
Que yo no soy amor entre hombre y mujer...
...Homosexual, Que pinche palabra!
