Praying with Fringes 1/09/2015 –

from Kissing God Goodbye
June Jordan

my name is not Abraham
my name is not Moses/Leviticus/Solomon/Cain or Abel
my name is not Adam
my name is female
my name is freedom
my name is the one who lives outside the tent of the father
my name is the one who is dark
my name is the one who fights for the end of the kingdom
my name is the one at home
my name is the one who bleeds
my name is the one with the womb
my name is female
my name is freedom
my name is the one the bible despised
my name is the one astrology cannot predict
my name is the name the law cannot invalidate
my name is the one who loves
