Buck and Annie work it out


He was in the Know Talent Show in 2002. The cowboy's name was Buck. His poetic offering to those in attendance over, he watched others from the audience, until he knew it was time. Annie was struggling to come out.

I can't hold her back any longer, he said to himself. The lyrics to "I need a Man" danced, no blasted, through his brain...
I don't care if you won't
Talk to me
You know I'm not that kind of girl.
And I don't care if you won't
Walk with me
It don't give me such a thrill.
And I don't care about the way you look
You should know I'm not impressed
'Cause there's just one thing
That I'm looking for
And he don't wear a dress.

I need a man...
I need a man...

His mind played the video frame by frame...


"I ain't no faggot,"
he says in a story submitted to RFD. No, he's not a faggot, he's a man, darn it. Well, that man did let Annie out, and he wasn't no faggot, he was Annie. The Annual High Summer Gathering at The Land aka Amber Fox gives much. One of the highlights is the big show held in the Erection. Read Cockelf's account of the experience here.

Cockelf's story is intimate, personal and maybe, just maybe, you'll want to let your alterego out yourself. If you need a man, or just some encouragement, read this.

Need an outlet, then check out the aka amberfox websites and
2006 Gathering Dates in the sidebar. It's all about being you.

You will also find this story, this experience in the Spring 2004 edition of RFD.

Greetings friends and Merry Meet, Ricky!

What a joy it is to see this adventure reprinted here. Presenting Buck's story that evening was truly a magical moment for me, as it really was my first time publicly performing in drag.

With all the hooplah surrounding Brokeback Mountain these days, it is nice to revisit cowboy Buck. His story is a simple one. He could no longer contain his longing and desire, and one night, Annie, his inner diva, lept forth with a fury. Buck's message is one for all of us: be yourself and embrace those parts of yourself that you keep surpressed and hidden.

Performing this piece at Amberfox's (know) talent show really rocked my world. It's an experience that I will never forget!

Cheers,
Terry (aka Cockelf)

Hey Cockelf,

It was truly a great story. Would be great if you could do some more writing. Do you write elsewhere?

Your story, your telling made me cry and then smile. But then I am a sensitive type boy. Feel free to fire more stuff this way and we can post it for others to read.
