Dashboard savior

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.

editors note:

If Second Coming is capitalized, then Apocalypse must be a parenthesis. – mh
