|Thank you, lesbian poet Mary Oliver|

I learned about someone new recently. Her name is Mary Oliver. She’s a noted poet that most lesbians, feminists, women and all lovers of really, really good poetry probably already know about. But if you don’t, you should. I was pointed toward her poem “Wild Geese.” It made me cry.
You do not have to be good.
I confess, I don’t know much about poetry. I don’t always know what a poem is supposed to mean. But I know I appreciate beautiful words strung together so easily that, for some reason, evoke an emotion from me. I see the imagery in this poem, I feel the comfort, I hear the rhythm. And the poem touched me.
Lately, I find peace in my world by watching a big Blue Jay or a mockingbird feed from a large block of bird food I have hanging near my door. And I don’t have to be a queer to appreciate a Blue Jay gobbling down nuts.
