“Lately Musings” – Cherilyn Fry

Out of the closet
And into the fire
Hotter than hell the flames lick my face
As my lover
Cools my heels

Out of the closet
And into the sidewalk
Walking as a female looking kind of like a guy
And for once
I am not afraid to be me
Not afraid to be me with you
My spirit
Within the caresses of this chosen way of being divine

Listen to the warbling of a newly made dyke
Singing tenor
And playing the harp
Laying quietly amongst the cd’s that rock my world
preferred favorite
changes this formerly straight space once inhabited by somebody I didn’t really know.

-Cherilyn Fry is happily married (to her wife Judy) living in Vancouver. She likes writing poetry.
