Coming Together

You’re supposed to know

the people you know,

and not the people you don’t

You’re supposed to feel

the things you can feel,

and not the things that you can’t

You’re supposed to be

what your nature portends,

and not what convention ascribes

You’re supposed to love

without borders or fear

—those moments forever alive
