We are Not the Fringes

we are not the fringes of our garment
but the entire garment

we are not in need of shelter
we are shelter

and our abilities are not our shame
or our unraveling

rather by weaving our own existence, we weave self and community 

Barukh atah adonai eloheinu melekh ha’olam asher kid’shanu b’mitvotav v’tzivanu l’hitatef batzitzit.

holding difference
embracing life

we cannot
nor shall we ever be contained
all the weaving days of our lives
