Leo's Song
Six months ago to the day,
I asked Eugene, "Are you gay?"
He said, "I'm really in doubt.
Why don't you help me find out?"
That night I went to his bed.
Today we're set to be wed.

Leo's Song is part of the poem series Felicitations by Felicia Nimue Ackerman. Ackerman is a professor of philosophy at Brown University and has had over 200 poems published in a wide range of places. We are lucky to get to have a few of them published right here at Options Magazine.
