This week’s mantra: market yourself.
Belong to a social circle of gay men.
Your i’s should make love with other i’s.
Not “I Don’t Know How to Love Him”
from Jesus Christ Superstar but “I o o o o oe i”
from eu i ea. In a bar, from afar, if you see 1, smile,
tilt your head back, make him feel safe.
Learn to like brunch. Be a man, your
Dad said a bunch. Now you can be much more
than just a man, you can be a Wonder
bunned Manwich on a blue plastic plate.
Be firm. Stop playing with your bracelets.
No wonder you’re. Speakup.
Stop being fat and sweet like a Fasnacht.
You are your mystery, you are my product.
