You could have a big dipper   

Pink Triangle Park I by Robin Sinclair



You could buy drugs here

without ever thinking of die rosa-winkel


without contemplating Paragraph 175 and American sodomy laws.


You could collect bent cigarette butts from within the weeds,

forgetting how the Band Played On,

with a negligence that hoped for a passive genocide.


You could overdose right here

without a god damn name


unless a corporate sponsor used it on a float in June.


You could die laughing here,

at the absurdity of a co-opted history,


quietly fading as business buzzes onward down the Castro.
