God Is Lovely



We come speaking tongues

Spanglish editions of handwritten love songs

Scribbled fiercely and flung

Into heartbeats

Who said nothing could grow from this?

Love practiced on lined dreams

We make babies to make peace

Love is godly

I think love is godly

We be full of promise

With this seed

Hold my belly and believe

Change is coming

It does take a village

And we need so many

  1. This poem is strong and full of hope. It’s tone is concise and deliberate…and lovely.

  2. I like how you used the line spacings to help convey meaning here, Jinnette. The poem moves at a graceful pace, too, in such ways.
