Survival of the Fittest
At the Church of 80% Sincerity

Sergio Ortiz

it was no crime to be born a delicate
male, but reaching puberty
while you’re opening up a frog
in biology class ruined
your sex life for good.
Games were another gray area.
No such thing as “hard” contact
during basket-ball practice was allowed,
and it wasn’t because of the balls,
or the running style.
So, I took ballet three nights a week,
studied sincerity percentages.
It was not easy.
Everyone I knew hid 20%
of their life at the Church
of 80% Sincerity.
