What The Purists Prefer


It was a great pink dusk    easily moved

An area that was in fact known for its kind sky


That day the infant invented a new kind of movement

It happened so slowly we couldn’t really say


was it finesse or brute force

We went to watch the crops anyway


waiting for a change in weather

we could say we had predicted


It was waiting off to the left      an obvious wall

A man spoke up and everyone stood


What he was saying was        When they start praying for miracles

that’s the announcement none are coming
