My church


   They said, no church approves of
   gay or lesbian marriage;
   I said, mine does.
   They asked, what church is that?
   And I said,
   the Church of the Dignity of all Men and Women.

   No incense.
   No funny hats.
   No sermons (save for this one).
   I agreed that I need a creed—
   but all I could think of was,
   "Live and Let Live."
   There are, unfortunately, a few empty pews.
