First there was a larger culture
then the queers found their way
and in those queers came women
who actively identified themselves.
And among those women were
women of color and allies
and in those women of color
were artists, intellectuals and activists.
And with that the community became so small
everyone knew each other, had their fingers up each other,
and had plenty of juicy gossip going around
that no one was a potential candidate for love, friendship,
or anything else.
Damned, to not be identified.
