Poem- People not Gender

I pick people not gender because when I was little I learned to taste the rainbow
I stumble over sexuality the way my boots trip over every crack in the pavement, picking up rocks that always feel bigger when they're caught under your feet
I pick people not gender because I hate having to shove a socially accepted term in front of the word 'friend'
Boyfriend: blue, girlfriend: pink, boyfriend: straight, girlfriend: gay
Let me tell you something, they don't make pink or blue skittles so what am I supposed to do when my favorite flavor is green
I pick people not gender because I love the way she looks in blue and you know what, he looks pretty hot in pink too
I pick people not gender because I hate the way blue raspberry tastes and bubblegum is getting a little old
I pick people not gender because when I was little I learned to taste the rainbow- and a rainbow isn't just pink and blue anymore
