Meditations for Queer Femmes

Whether or not we work directly with queer youth, we adult queers provide role models and beacons. An end-of-the-year prayer for all the femmes who have queer youth in their lives.

 

Creative forces, sweet golden light

Help me stay focused on the good work

The children are reaching out

They are losing their T-passes, wearing yesterday’s t-shirts

Perhaps they have had too much coffee today

And in their pockets are tear-stained bandanas

 

Arrange the energy so that my heart floats

heavy with passion in my chest

this one loves her mother so much

this one worries about his old father

and this one lets her sister sleep with her when the sister can take no more

 

They are not to be hindered by loutishness

they must be allowed to connect to those places

those places where diamonds gleam

buds are bursting forth

they must be able to provide

in all their colors and glory

what the world needs

and what makes all of us rejoice

 

Keep me marching forth

keep my eyes open

Let me not fail these children

Our children

Miasma will not overtake me

I offer up

I rejoice and demand

Please smile on me

your child, grown older

hold me steady

hold me close

let us all go forth

 

Every Monday, I will offer a Meditation for queer femmes, in the spirit of my maternal grandmother, Mimi, who was a fabulous straight femme, and from whom I inherited her Meditations for Women.
