DC WOMEN presents:
"My feminism will be intersectional or it will be bullshit"
my phone autocorrected “queerness” to “queer mess” and it’s never understood me better than in that moment
Still, what I want in my life
is to be willing
to be dazzled—
to cast aside the weight of facts
and maybe even
to float a little
above this difficult world.
I want to believe I am looking
into the white fire of a great mystery.
I want to believe that the imperfections are nothing—
that the light is everything—that it is more than the sum
of each flawed blossom rising and falling. And I do.
