A blessing for the queer coffee shop

God of Queerness
Bless this rainbow coffee shop
In this red-state town
And all of the folks
Who work here and patronize this place
It is a rare space
That exudes belonging, acceptance
With comforting drinks
And mismatched couches
It is the only Church of Jazz
On a Sunday morning
Where all of the local misfits
Come to venerate a communal divine
Who is experienced through
Our senses as we
Listen
Drink
Talk
Our way through this informal worship.
Amen.
