A prayer for peace.
This poem is in honor of the lives taken at Club Q during a shooting and hate crime against the Queer community: Ashley Paugh (she/her), Daniel Aston (he/him), Derrick Rump (he/him), Raymond Green Vance (he/him), Kelly Loving (she/her).
What is home? Read the interview with Daniel Paul as part of the "Home is a Garden" project.
Will you be there?
At the river
We find her in the kitchen of the apartment
Wearing nothing but a bra and a half slip.
Someday this summer
I will cross through a mist
Gravity will release my burdens…
But he did die that morning
At 32 years old…
There is a time to mourn
a time to dance
and we dance naked…
i thought of you while
driving south on the expressway
when i turned on my high beams
cause it was raining
and it was dark and, well…
i have astigmatism
We talk to monsters
When the afternoon light is still good
Making home for us on this side…
