–What book are you reading up there?
–Stephen King. Third book in his Dark Tower series.
–So this guy asked me today if letting a guy suck your dick makes you gay.
–And what did you tell him?
–I told him I didn’t think it did. What do you think?
–Well, I think it’s complicated.
–Complicated? What do you mean?
–I think a lot of guys fool around in prison. But it doesn’t necessarily make them gay. It’s just the environment.
–Yeah, that’s right. That’s true. The environment. I mean, ’cause like I said, I’m trisexual, I’ll try anything. You know?
–Yeah . . . so have you ever fooled around with a guy before?
–Yeah. Like, I’ve fingered myself, played with a dildo, shit like that. And my home-bro on the streets, Shane, we sucked dick and shit . . . and by-the-way, man, this shit don’t leave the room. You hear?
–Yeah, I know. Of course.
–So . . . I was straight with you; now you be straight with me. Have you ever fooled around with a guy?
—Bubba, I’m gay. That girlfriend I’m always talking about, that’s my boyfriend.
–Oh . . . so what do you think?
–Do you wanna fool around? I mean, it stays just between us.
–I don’t know.
–What do you mean you don’t know?
–I mean, I just don’t know. I’ve got a boyfriend.
–Yeah, dude, but you’ve got like a ten-year sentence to go . . .
–I know, but . . . I’ve got a boyfriend. And what if the C.O. comes and sneaks by with her flashlight and catches us . . .
–Dude, she ain’t gonna catch us. You can hear that door open . . .
–I don’t know.
–It’s up to you.
