revealing

boy or girl
pink or blue

a binary star
of bunting
and genitalia

hot dog or bun
bats or brooms

gender and sex
conflated
in a blender of
expectations

baseball diamonds
or diamond rings

as yet unborn
an idea of a person
personality
to be determined

lashes or staches
touchdowns or tutus

would we not rather
mine and
than or
when all is potential

mister or sister
guns or roses

why circumcise
a nose
to spite the face

he or she
nuts or no nuts

why punctuate
with period
or exclamation point
a sentence
not yet begun
