Driving one day in the city, I saw
in a library window a sign
that read WE BELONG TOGETHER.  A warm
hand, a hand of human language, reached up
to touch my heart.  It was as if the split-off
lost side of myself had spoken.  What Eros
in the story those three words tell.  Imagine
if we adopted them as our message, could
anything stop us?  What if we came
together around the shared beauty
of who we really are, beyond labels
and identity?  If we said “We belong
together” and meant it, think what we could do.
