First Lies


The New Civil Rights Movement has just reprinted “First Lies,” a poem from my book titled Hidden Drive. Click on the logo to find it there with a photo by Vivian Felten.

An early version of “First Lies” appeared in The Community News (2003), the newsletter of the GLBT Community Center Project of Western Massahuestts, for which I was a contributing writer. Unfortunately for Northampton, the Community Center eventually had to close its doors. While it lasted, I was proud to contribute this poem and a column titled “Love vs. Straight Supremacy.”

The poem appears in  “Riddled,” the third section of my book, which is about same-sex marriage.
