"[Mayor] Newsom, who helped launch the series of lawsuits that led the court to strike down California's one-man-one-woman marriage laws, presided at the wedding of Del Martin, 87, and Phyllis Lyon, 83.

Newsom picked the couple for the only ceremony Monday in City Hall to recognize their 55-year relationship and their status as pioneers of the gay rights movement."


How much time do you have left for those who do not accept you as you are? Some folks spend a lifetime, some are recognized only after death.

Would you deny them this?
Truthfully,
would you?

peace out,

Old Bones

Old bones seek to be buried together.
One granite slab to cover forever.

Their vows uniting
again and again.

Old bones seek to mend
what others would gladly rend asunder

this moment, 55 years in the making.
Who would dare do the taking?
Who would care enough forsaking
bigotry

to let old bones rest in peace and
harmony.
