Wine Future


_ I hear you have a wine date tonight
_ Yes, it would seem so…
_ And how is she?

She’s…
she’s a legend,
she’s an angel bringing hope to many
she’s a star in my sky
and makes my soul smile

She is laughter and brings me joy,
she is understanding and heart,
she is brave and fierce,
her beauty shining forth from her innermost being

She sees me
where I hadn’t been seen
a kindred spirit reaching across space
I want to reach back
touching body, mind and soul

_ I hear you have a wine date tonight
_ Yes, it would seem so…
_ And how is she?

She radiates,
she comes back to life,
even when tired she shines.
She’s a legend,

Pass me over the wine,
and give me a filter, too.

Trans is Beautiful


Trans is beautiful

like the first rays of the sun glistening on the drops of dew

like a flower opening to show its beauty

like a butterfly breaking free from its cocoon

like the brilliant facets of a freshly polished diamond

like a young bird learning to fly

Trans is beautiful

Trans is strong

Trans is precious

Trans is unique

Trans is wonderful

Transamazing

Trans-ition

to bring out the true handsome beautiful self

in every creatively possible way

Trans-formation

to bring about what was always meant to be,

what has always been,

buried and alive, deep in heart & soul

Trans is beautiful

Trans is handsome

Trans is precious

Trans is blessed

Trans is LOVE.

La Santa Muerte


Come to me, into my arms,
all you hurdled masses
All the outcast and the rejected
all the hopeless cases

My arms are open
I accept everyone, I know of no rejection
I accept every offer, no matter how small

They want to control me, but they can’t
And no intermediary between me and those who call upon me

Protector from violence
from hatred
from disease
I’ll help you find love

I’m the Godmother,
the Black Lady

My arms are open
for all the outcast and rejected
all those who don’t conform
all those who don’t have a home
or who have been ejected from their homes
and churches
no popes will rule over me
no preachers, no pastors no gurus

And when the end has come
I will take your hand
and will lead you on
to the promised paradise
to meet the blessed dead
the ancestors who have come before you
who walk before you,
beside you
and live in your heart-
Remember them!

Yom HaShoah


לכל איש יש שם
chaque personne a un nom
chaque personne avait un nom
chaque personne aura un nom
et pour chaque personne ne pas née il y aurait eu un nom

les six millions ne seront pas oubliés
pas un seul d’entre eux
pas le plus petit des enfants,
tendant ses mains vers imma
amenés vers la mort
pour se réveiller dans le cœur de D.ieu

לכל איש יש שם
chaque personne a un nom
chaque personne avait un nom
chaque personne aura un nom
et pour chaque personne ne pas née il y aurait eu un nom
Debout le long des lignes de chemin de fer
marchant entre les wagons remplis de bétail humain
n’étant plus des humains,
dégradés en numéros et réduits en silence
mais même les pierres hurlaient

לכל איש יש שם
chaque personne a un nom
chaque personne avait un nom
chaque personne aura un nom
et pour chaque personne ne pas née il y aurait eu un nom
froids et affamés
transpirants et malades
trébuchant en avant, amenés vers la mort
trébuchant en avant, survivant
faisant des téfillin de morceaux de papier

לכל איש יש שם
chaque personne a un nom
chaque personne avait un nom
chaque personne aura un nom
et pour chaque personne ne pas née il y aurait eu un nom
Oh D.ieu plein de compassion
accorde le repos parfait
et ta présence

לכל איש יש שם
chaque personne a un nom
chaque personne avait un nom
chaque personne aura un nom
et pour chaque personne ne pas née il y aurait eu un nom
Oh D.ieu très haut, plein de compassion
– et tout bas
sois un arbri pour l’âme de mon bien-aimé ayant disparu à jamais

לכל איש יש שם
chaque personne a un nom
chaque personne avait un nom
chaque personne aura un nom
et pour chaque personne ne pas née il y aurait eu un nom
Oh D.ieu plein de compassion,
le plus vrai des juges,
protégé-les sous tes ailes
puisse leur mémoire
inpirer ma vie
chaque jour.

(Aujourd’hui est YomHaShoah. Yom HaShoah יום השואה « Journée de la Shoah », jour pour rendre hommage et faire mémoire des victimes de la politique nazie d’extermination du peuple juif.)

לכל איש יש שם


each person has a name
each person had a name
each person will have a name
and for each person not born there would have been a name

the six million will not be forgotten
not one of them
not the smallest child,
reaching with little hands towards imma
being lead away to death
to awaken again in the heart of G-d

לכל איש יש שם
each person has a name
each person had a name
each person will have a name
and for each person not born
there would have been a name

standing next to railroad tracks
walking amidst wagon loads of cattle-like humans
humans not anymore,
degraded to numbers and reduced to silence
but even the stones would cry out

לכל איש יש שם
each person has a name
each person had a name
each person will have a name
and for each person not born
there would have been a name

freezing and hungering
sweating and sick
stumbling forward, lead away to death
stumbling forward, surviving
making tefillin from scraps of paper

לכל איש יש שם
each person has a name
each person had a name
each person will have a name
and for each person not born
there would have been a name

oh God full of compassion
grant perfect rest
and thy presence

לכל איש יש שם
each person has a name
each person had a name
each person will have a name
and for each person not born
there would have been a name

oh God most merciful on high
– and below
be a shelter to the soul
of my beloved who has gone

לכל איש יש שם
each person has a name
each person had a name
each person will have a name
and for each person not born
there would have been a name

oh God full of compassion,
truest of judges,
shelter them under your wings
may their memories
inspire my living
each day.

What is love?

It is not only
butterflies, red roses, smiles and kisses

It is also
knowing, feeling, and making known
that

whoever hurts my love, hurts me
whoever rejects my love, rejects me
whoever judges my love, judges me
whoever disrespects my love, disrespects me
whoever lacks to show love towards my love, fails to do the same to me
whoever is indifferent towards my love, is indifferent to me
whoever is ashamed of my love, is ashamed of me

For she is my love, my light, my joy
my heart, my soul, my raison d’être – the love of my life
my blood, my breath, my oxygen –
words to express how deeply affected I am —

If your faith makes you reject a person
even a family member
makes you be ashamed of them
then,
your faith has failed its purpose:
to make you a better person,
justified before God and humankind
because what
justifies such thinking?

My anger runs blue
