The moon is in doubt
over whether to be
a man or a woman.

There’ve been rumors,
all manner of allegations,
bold claims and public lies:

He’s belligerent. She’s in a funk.
When he fades, the world teeters.
When she burgeons, crime blossoms.

O how the operatic impulse wavers!
Dip deep, my darling, into the blank pool.

 

Have you seen the library’s new bulletin board and display?  We’re talking about equality this month, and Harwood’s “Alliance” team took over the library bulletin board to get an important message across: Gay Rights = Human Rights.  Stop by the library and peruse their selections of GLBTQIA books from the library catalog!

Also, check out this TED Talk with presenter Ash Beckham.  She talks about how we all need to find the courage to come out of our “closets” and open up.
