The face of Vaseline when it evaporates
The face of the sun blocked by Vaseline

The face of Mrs. Burton when I smother her with
The face of the waterfall when it trickles Vaseline

The face of the giraffe when Vaseline is around its
The face of the kitten with its eyes glittering in
black Vaseline

The face of the elephant when its trunk is dipped into
a suitcase of Vaseline
The face of the farmer when the goat consumes his

The face of the exotic dancer when dollar bills wet
with Vaseline,
are stuck down into the strap of her g-string

The face of the fire fighter who fights fires with
The face of the police officer when he catches the
jewel thief with Vaseline

The face of the chicken egg when it's about to be
scrambled in Vaseline
The face of the mule when it kicks over a canister of

The face of the hamburger smeared with Vaseline
The faces of cats and dogs when it rains Vaseline

Confused faces with Vaseline
The face of the steel tongue licked by Vaseline

The face of a barefoot slipping in a puddle of
The face of a family of four sinking in a river of

The face of Ivana Trump rolling in Vaseline
The face of someone tasting, what could only be
Vaseline, in their milkshake

The face of the lady who threw out the winning bottle
of Vaseline
The face of the ballerina getting pushed into Vaseline

The face of the sleepwalker who wakes up in Vaseline
The face of the sergent when he throws Vaseline
instead of the grenade

The face of Raquel Welch when she rubs on Vaseline
The face of Vaseline when it is rubbed on Raquel Welch

Faces of Family

The face of Aunt Norris
when she saw me hanging
flyers for a gay poetry group on a bulletin board.
The face of Uncle Weed when he got the word from Aunt
that I might be queer.
Imagine my face
when he asked me,
drunk off his ass, if I suck dick.
The face of Aunt Earline finding
out the news from Uncle Weed,
who found out from Aunt Norris,
that her nephew, who loves her jelly cake
more than life, likes men the way women do.
Imagine the face Auntee Alice made
when it was whispered in her ear by her daugher,
my cousin, Chrissy, that her nephew, the son
of one of her brother's is a punk.
Just picture the faces of cousin Melvet and cousin
who used to give me free chicken at Popeye's
and all the burgers I could eat from Burger King,
that her cousin, the one she never sees anyway,
is a fag.
Imagine the face of  the twins, Kee-Kee and Kenny,
finding out from cousin Sean, in a game of gin rummy,
that it is rumored that I, the 'ham" of the family,
is a faggot.
Imagine how far the wrinkles of Auntee Mable's face
How Dee, her husband's mouth dropped, when they got
of the latest familial scandal that her nephew, the
cousin to her daughters,
Tameka, Monique and Kim, the second cousin to their
children, plays for the 'pink team.
The face of Leisha getting the call in Virginia,
The face of Duane hearing of it in Wakulla,
Just picture the faces of Ebony and J.R. putting two
and two together
after figuring out exactly which cousin I am, and
being none other than shocked
beyond belief that I kiss and lie with men.
The face of my uncle they call 'Chicken Man,' the
brother to sisters, the brother to brothers,
the father to son and daughters, and the ex-husband to
his ex-wife in Woodville,
hearing that I could possibly be an all out
a sinner, a sodomite.


He worries that if he lets this sissy suck him,
He will like it and want to come back for more.
He worries that if he put's that man's penis in his

he will love it and  want to put  more penis' in his
He worries that if he let's the cute red head
take him home and screw him, he will like
it up the butt and want to do it again and again and

He worries that  due to the small size
of this small town, where things of all sorts
tend to get around, he will be crucified and

He worries that if  he's seen in this gay bar
by someone from church, it will get back to his wife
and his life as he knows it, will be over.

He worries like all breeders do, that if he catches
"the bug," from this faggot, there won't be enough
dirt on earth to cover up his secret.
