Toxic Relationship Webs

Like most of my poems this relates to me and others like me but

I know plenty of queers with kids so if that’s you

Disregard this—

Sometimes I get trapped in this sort of web where I’m like

“Queer relationships have too many problems to be healthy”

And then I realize the internalized homophobia baked into that

When I talk to my straight coworkers

Who have kids from high school and college

That hate their very existence. The amount of

Potential for toxicity with

Gay vs straight relationships is

At the very best, apples to oranges, but honestly just

No comparison.

At least I didn’t accidentally make a baby and have to try and raise a kid

With any of my exes.
