“If you could choose to do anything, to live any lifestyle other than how you’re currently living, if you want to alter the smallest part of your life in any fashion and you’re not in process of doing so: currently you’re living a lie.”
Quote from Ted Sakozik, “The Dive Bar Prophet,” by D.L Edison
Coming October, 2018
From the long worn barstool upon which he sits, centered mid-bar at Uncle Andy’s Tavern, Ted Sakozik disseminates enlightenment –one cocktail at a time.
He only wants one good night sleep before he dies.
This and other short stories coming Spring 2019 in the collection,
Sex, Drugs and Junior High by D.L Edison.
Depending on it’s keeper, truth is: factual, mythical or bullshit.
A crowed room of us could really stink.
This new book is a crushing blow to conformity and a battle cry for independence.
Lizzie Borden had the right idea.
I wonder who she did first, the father or the step-mother.
“We’re always here for ya Lizzie!” Likely rang in her ears as she muscled the first skull popping blow with a smile.
And what about the brothers?
I’m feeling quite transgender as I decide which door through I will go
I prefer the ladies room
It’s clean; it smells so fresh
It’s worth the wait –the line is rather slow
As I walked in I got a strange stare
From a woman at the sink
I knew what she was thinking, and I didn’t even care
See I was born a male; junk and all
My gender identity is that of female, I should have been born that way
The penis that I came with, is so very small
It just so happens I like to wear; baggy jeans, a Yankees ball cap, fresh white kicks and an even whiter tee. Some say I dress like a man; I say I dress like me
I have often been asked: why not just consider yourself a dude
Nobody would know the difference
And you wouldn’t get hassled or hear from people who are rude
I know the difference, I know who I am
I’m a transgender woman; one who dresses like a man
The only thing, I think we can do
So that we can all fly our freak flags
Is to make public bathrooms unisex and available to all
And if you didn’t want to share your bathroom with a freak like me
You’d have to wait and hold it till you get home
So you can take a private pee
Magic is the manifestation of dreaming and believing in yourself.
Magic is alive and living well,
work is required.
Start small, dream big –make magic.
Christmas in America is a felonious display of malicious capitalism,
and I love it every year.
I thought of myself as a ham sandwich,
when you never took me for more than PB and J.
