Do check out Jendi's post, "Adoptive Families Are Queer Families," over at REITER'S BLOCK. Our friend makes some perceptive observations.
And do go read the rest of the poem that begins...
Our Lord of Flaked Paint freckling
sallow skin and emerald robes,
Our Lord of Mudpuddle Eyes
that look away in weary irritation,
no one can touch your loneliness,
God cut off from God.
