Poem of The Week-IMRU

My nerves flipped into gear

The Hear Me Out story Contest

At the Blackbox village theater

Stood in front of three judges

My Christian conversion

Denying my Judaism

For a moment at sixteen

To stop my Sissyhood

Begging my friend Paul’s forgiveness

Stormed the broadcast

I lathered each comment

Ears heard my voice

The score of 28 out of 30


Second place showing

Winner takes all on

IMRU KPFK Monday night

But competing on October 11th

Coming Out Topic
