My Mum equated queerness with intelligence
For she was surprised how many were going to university
And are successful
She asked me why
But I don’t know what the reason was
I wondered why are they always shy?
I mean why so secretive
Maybe they didn’t want the attention
Wanted to be like eveyone else
But y’know they are quite special
And I am creep wanting to be smart
No matter what the cause
Humans can be strange that way. We are all different and all the same at the same time. But we seek to pattern ourselves and once the pattern breaks or no longer works we lose all sense of self.
