“Just because two characters of the same sex appear in the same story, it should not preclude the possibility of a romance between them. No, not everyone is queer, but the other side of that coin is that not everyone is straight.”

The donkey crammed into the luggage rack,

Ears twitching, and one little bray at takeoff.
The baby doesn't make a sound,
Strapped inside Mary's seatbelt, smiling,
