Queer Aliyah Blessing

this is a blessing
for neither or
well actually
and sometimes

for avraham
bat sarah

sarah ben avraham

for all the houses with
unmarked doors
that peer through windows and mirrors
and there
feel G-d’s breeze
their/Their ease

O to be endless ones
breathing into the world
The infinite and
Manifold One!

I am Av Rah
of Abraham and Sarah
outside the lines


but i’ve chosen my own names

We are Creation!

I am Magic


Blessed are my names who are remaking my namesakes and calling each and every one of me, They/Them/Their, Us, G-d – and We! – to the reading of Torah.
