streets of gold

seen in the early morning light
between the hours of seven and nine,
SE 29th at Shields in Capitol Hill becomes like a street of gold. The sunlight baptizes the pavement and
announces the coming of something brilliant.

maybe this is what Jesus was talking about
when he said, even the rocks will cry.
well, even the streets are crying out.
and breaking through the battered pavement is a big country,
exploding in a splendor which encompasses both Hills, valleys
and spills across borders and beyond tribal lines.

the light insists locals behold and witness the coming of the kingdom
on earth in the most historic of places
Capitol Hill
SE 29th at Shields
across from the fast-food drive-in.
