Doxology

Dear Queer God,

They know exactly what they do

so no deliverance needed.

I don’t trust you
If you don’t believe
Black and brown bodies
routinely die
at the hands of police
and are not actively
taking action of protection
that’s just facts
I don’t make the rules
Put your body on the line
Put your power on the line

Dear Queer God,

Forgiveness is so far away

I don’t trust you
if you are a straight white lady
exploiting queer and trans lives
for your own profit gain
benefiting from narrative
not yours to claim
when the stakes are too high
when your life is not in danger
for the narratives
you love enough to co-opt
I don’t make the rules
Put your livelihood on the line
Put your privilege on the line

Dear Queer God,

How many cheeks to turn

Before we run out of faces

And we have to take matters

into our own hands
