Zen in the City

Zen in the City

City streets are hard
I cannot feel
The yielding Earth

A busy crossing. Halfway
High heeled stumble. A catch.
Beautiful smiles.
Christmas throng swept on.
They both remembered.

Christmas in the cold city
Jesus huddles on every pavement
Asking the Philistines to be Samaritans.
