    Call me by my given name
    I hesitate to answer
    call me girl
    I ignore you
    call me boy
    I ignore you
    and laugh uncomfortably inside
    call me dyke
    I walk faster
    head down
    hands pushed deep into
    the pocket of my
    men’s pants
    pull my cap
    down farther over my
    short hair and
    angry green eyes
    try to be proud
    while looking down
    Butch represent!
    but that’s all it is
    a myth of an identity
    tomorrow I see my mother
    and I put on my push-up bra
    and style my hair differently
    femme straight
    femme girl
    inhabit another lie
    What am I?
    queer activist
    a foot in the closet
    the other in my mouth
    girl coy
