COME TO YOUR CENSUS

 
  For whom do you work?
        I work for the heterosexist dictatorship.
  And for how long have you been with that firm?
       All my life.
  Your salary?
       Acceptable, provided I keep my mouth shut
       and walk like Charlton Heston.
  If you don't?
       Homeless.
  Tell us about your living conditions.
       I live in a bottle of antiseptic.
  Why?
       Because I get beat up all the time.
  Oh.
       Oh.
  Your name?
       Must I?
  It's required.
       Kenneth Pobo.
  Thank you very much, Mr. Pobo--we know how
  to find you.
       Yes, I know.
  Good day.
       Someday.


- Kenneth Pobo
