Oh, Gender

If I put my gender on
like black face
and did a little dance
would you throw this dog
a bone?

I feel trapped by the Yes/No nature of this poem. Where's my chance for halting equivocation?

I see your point.

How about this:

would you, could you
throw this dog a bone?

Then, maybe you're being facetious. The poem might work better as a confrontation. Hmmm.

I guess it depends on the little dance. And also, the problem is that I, annoyingly, also identify with the dog too.
