I Am Suicide
A compilation of haikus on gays in the 1960’s

My heart is not a
Gender. My soul is not sin.
Let me love freely.

I love you. Not the
World. Cause the world does not love
Us. So why be here?

Because I love you
Openly. I have to lose
You. Ain't that some shit.

I died today cause
My heart could not reach without
A gavel involved.

Live Love. Life Lost. I
Committed only one sin.
I am Suicide.
