Love on the March

for my late friend Brian Zimmer

a phalanx
of bull dykes and drag queens
rioted at the Stonewall ...
two male cops French-kissing
in the sunny Pride Parade

Jesus had two dads
he turned out just alright ...
holding the sign 
an old gay sighs, to be a man
I cut out soft parts of myself

if God hates gays
why are we so cute?
behind the banner
I see his eyes glow
with a bright blue of hope
