Buxtehude And Rain - Poem by Leslie Philibert

Broken chords forced through a sodden door,
the church fallen in standing water, as if

derailed, silent watchers gathering before
broken wheels and piston steam, thrilled

and waiting for a hand to turn out the lights,
a half-round face behind a door spending

a blessing, a saint nodding over a job well done,
the crucifix over the door lost in the darkening.
