Sparkplug O’Shea 

Lunch Break – Chicago

“Can I ask you a question? Can I have lunch with you?” 
“It’s cause I’m black, isn’t it? If I was a white man you’d say ‘Sure! Sit down.’” 
“You got a man?” 
“That’s none of your business.”
“Where he at then? Letting you sit here by yourself.” 
         “I’m gay.”
“WHAT!? How long have you been gay?” 
         “What kind of a question is that?”
“You just let me know when you’re ready to switch
cause I would LOVE to tackle that.”
