Age 13


I come from a rainbow family
Test-tube baby
My genes come from a man I'll never know
Home is at the Pride Parade
My dog is walked on a rainbow leash.

I come from a twisted neck
Screaming loud
Taken from my mother's womb
Thrown into life much too early.

I come from a peeling red picnic table
On the porch, slivers in my feet
Smell of bread cooking in the oven
Drum circles
Catapulting into a freezing pool
And love
So much love. 

Lonely Blue

I see it in the papers
On the news
Children crying.
It splits my heart down its seam.

Lonely Blue
Floating on the floodwaters
Being lifted by currents
By a flow of events I can't reverse.
The child who dies to save his brother.
The old man who shields his wife from a bullet.
Heartache and sacrifice.

Hope inside my kaleidoscope heart
A coming-out speech shared with thousands
Crowds pledging to change the world,
Daylight to dusk.
Si se puede.
Yes, we can.
It gets better.
Flying for the feel of the wind.

Bittersweet melancholy
Taking one more step for justice.
Stitching my heart back together
With purple thread.
The kids, we'll be all right.
Product of love.
Messenger of peace.
I throw every last caution to the wind.
