|Dancing Prayers. Photo from Circles of Faith.|
I want to cry in the arms of tender men.
I want to dance prayers so vibrant the Holy Spirit switches genders
at least three times
as she carries our prayers to Orlando.
I want to dance across the binaries
separating healing and self defense,
spirituality and politics,
nurturing and fighting for our lives.
I want to dance prayers
that corrode American borders,
prayers that will become martial arts
if anyone tries to harm our Muslim loved ones
and will sound like Stonewall
if anyone tries to stop us from dancing
