Public Displays of Affection

Public Displays of Affection

should cease being gross
after junior high.

I enjoy holding her hand in public;
embracing;
laying my lips on hers;
giving and receiving
a neck massage
on a park bench.
.
These should not be privileges
I somehow earn.

I’m not talking about the obscene.
But if you’re comfortable
seeing me and her
you should remain comfortable
if it’s him and him.

If you’re not, seek help.
It’s your problem.
Not theirs.
