Narrow Rooms


“Vance, don’t say anymore . . . 
I think you are angry with me 
really because I told you I was 
. . . that way . . .”

“I’m not at all,” Vance interrupted 
him passionately. 

“I don’t believe you’re queer 
anyhow, or gay, or whatever they 
call it… Prison made you think that . . .”

“Oh Vance, Vance . . . 
I am, I am, I am.”
