Transvestite

“Don’t force it, get a bigger hammer.”
    ~ Arthur Bloch

You sure look fetching to this poet
In those fishnet hose
That miniskirt
That makeup
A symbol of investment
If outweighing what’s under the hood
Or rather the bonnet
Or is it the pleat
Don’t even think about it
If you don’t have the virility I need
One word with me will tell us both
Apart more than any unspoken statement
Of what we’re expecting to be
Acceptable
Or too bad
If how you look
Turns out to be a waste of effort in light
Of how I think
