 ORWELL FREUD WAS RIGHT

i envy the boys
their pride sucks them up
as they hurdle curses across like balls
their minds shrinking back into that
old animalistic instinct they were born with

i curse the doctors in their blinding white coats
as i imagine how they flipped a coin and bet
whether i'd burst out a girl or a boy
while god laughed from the sidelines
and made both sides the same

i know my father's anger
driving home from the hospital
eyes and fists clenched tight, he shook his head
and shouted, i wanted a boy i wanted a boy
my mother saying, then you should've thrown me down the stairs earlier

it's not comforting to know
i'm in the same category as you
mother][fucker.
