The Advantages of living Lopsided in a Lopsided House

books stack neatly against each other
without bookends, without having to be part of a full shelf;
it takes less effort to push your boyfriend off the bed
when he’s annoying or should get up to walk the dogs;
shelf space in the kitchen can be fully used;
people find you much more interesting that their
straight friends and your work place cannot fire
you since you’re “different” and protected by law;
you wake up in the morning and the world looks
different somehow and pots of gold slide down
rainbows into your yard.

Wow. That is one frickin' steep street! (Yes, I get the little trick... but I love the poem anyway... especially the bit about the books.)
