Harvey's Wingtips

Harvey's Wingtips by Mickey Kulp

history fading
even this recently
coming out and taking risks
serious stuff in 1978

be true to yourself

please, I'm your neighbor
don't do this
it's not necessary
too many friends on
the quilt
too young to be
so sick
so quick

be true to yourself

fools running the show
couldn't handle new ideas
easier to hate
than to understand
assassination was simple

blood in the hall and
on the second-hand wingtips
as good a place as any
to finish this
part of a long story

be true to yourself

[World AIDS Day #WAD2017]
