Just a glimpse — quick flash really.
swishing past next to a hula girl,
grass skirt swirling gold, green.
Downtown Bellingham street,
Cornwall, road running out
by Assumption Catholic Church,
near that purple place
where all the peaceniks meet —
Wondered briefly if Second Coming
is capitalized — likely, yes,
because it would be important.
In a ’69 Camaro, I think,
not something you would drive
to reach a mountain lake.
Anyway, saw him fly by, upright,
hands in prayer, eyes blue, bright,
glued tight to the dashboard,
not about to go anywhere.
