Identity Politics

"what are you?"
you hold the question in your mind but hesitate to ask.
let go of your fear.
i am Love incarnate, manifest on this plane
to bring healing through joy
and joy through healing
just like you.
i am spirit.
this body i wear is a time machine, with inherent limitations,
but my intrinsic self
is a facet
of the Infinite Fractal
of the Divine Is.
just like you.
we ARE One.
already always complete, we explore
the endless dimensions
of our magnificent imagination.
nothing can truly harm us
as we surf the web of stars.
even our cancers cannot disturb
the limitless ocean of Life.
wisdom and joy are our rightful inheritance,
we the children of galactic passion,
bubbles in the champagne
of our Mother's sweet laughter.
if She is everywhere,
and you and i and we are Her,
and the earth still speaks
and the sky still weeps
and the hills still creep
and the fields still breathe
and the moon still flies in her endless tide
and the lines of the world are still holding up our minds,
and if nothing still tastes sweeter
than these bitter wisps of faith,
then you and i and we and they
may bend but never break.
