Cosmology


On the corner there is one way
and that is Jesus Christ our lord.

In the bar there are chicken wings
called Satan's Revenge.

The church ladies park in the handicapped spot,
wearing feathered hats, eating their french fries
and counting their change so carefully.

The workers in bright orange coveralls
descend a ladder beneath the earth.
One performs the sign of the cross.

The rivers beneath us trickle through
the pipes. There are no alligators
but it is dark and to forget
is a danger.

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
