Today there is a dyke march in the city. In honour of the marchers and the onlookers, “Epistle to Tasha” by Rita Mae Brown selected for inclusion in Out of the Closets: Voices of Gay Liberation edited by Karla Jay and Allen Young.

The dead are the only people

     to have permanent dwellings.

And are reborn on each other’s lips

To ride wild mares over unfathomable canyons

Hearalding dawn, dreams and sweet desire.

And so for day 191
