Hidden away

at the end 

or more often just omitted

not out of hate, but of ignorance.

What could A stand for but

Allies, anyway?

Purposeful perpetuation of an imperfect initialism

is alienating members of an already alienated community.

Because if I'm not straight enough to be straight,

but not queer enough to be queer,

then where the hell do I fit in?
