Message from Writer

Love your body, because you are your body, not in the sense of it being the only thing by which you are judged, but in the sense of it being the vessel for your soul and the protector of your mind.

I hear them too,
in the pastor’s sermon:
”Marriage is to be
between a man
and a woman.”
I believe him about the Bible,
I’ve poured over it,
searching for some loophole.
I didn’t find any.
But I don’t care.
I would burn in hell for you,
if it came to that. 

I am the ocean,
and you are the wind.
and we will live
in a cottage
in Sweden
with wands 
and sigils
and matching talismans
because we are everything to me.
