Conference Call

(inspired by the 8/22 conference call with members of the Azolla Story, a space for queer people of color with disabilities. We are always looking for new members!)

I retreat into
bedroom with ancient cordless phone
I’m seeking privacy and community
in one space.

But I realize
this space is too dark
self to find needed
solidarity, support, sisterhood.

I guess
I’ll take my queer, disabled, brown ass
back to the living room
and carry on this conversation
in fluorescent’s exposing light,
I decide I don’t care who overhears

I think this is the most found
I’ve ever felt.
