The Cast | A Poem by Roy Pullam

He hocked up hate
And spit it
In the direction
Of the two gay men
Pressing his point
With the authority
Of the Bible
Promised damnation
The cold lesson
Of Leviticus
Old testament righteousness
That made them less
That gave him authority
To lend judgment
To play God
And I
Was not so prepared
To be as divine
