I Woke Up
Jameson Fitzpatrick
and it was political1
 I made coffee and the coffee was political. 
 I took a shower and the water was. 
 I walked down the street in short shorts and a Bob Mizer tank top 
 and they were political, the walking and the shorts and the beefcake 
 silkscreen of the man posing2 in a G-string. I forgot my sunglasses 
 and later, on the train, that was political, 
 when I studied every handsome man in the car. 
 Who I thought was handsome was political. 
 I went to work at the university and everything was 
 very obviously3 political, the department and the institution. 
 All the cigarettes I smoked between classes were political, 
 where I threw them when I was through. 
 I was blond4 and it was political. 
 So was the difference between "blond" and "blonde." 
 I had long hair and it was political. I shaved my head and it was. 
 That I didn't know how to grieve5 when another person was killed in America 
 was political, and it was political when America killed another person, 
 who they were and what color and gender6 and who I am in relation. 
 I couldn't think about it for too long without feeling a helplessness 
 like childhood. I was a child and it was political, being a boy 
 who was bad at it. I couldn't catch and so the ball became political. 
 My mother read to me almost every night 
 and the conditions that enabled7 her to do so were political. 
 That my father's money was new was political, that it was proving something. 
 Someone called me faggot and it was political. 
 I called myself a faggot and it was political. 
 How difficult my life felt relative to how difficult it was 
 was political. I thought I could become a writer 
 and it was political that I could imagine it. 
 I thought I was not a political poet and still 
 my imagination was political. 
 It had been, this whole time I was asleep.
