CHRIST COMES BACK

When Christ comes back,
it will be to look for Gandhi’s grave
(Gandhiji, who stood before the cross
in open wonder at its power).
It will be to play stickball in the ghetto streets,
to burn in the market with orange monks.
It will be to reaffirm
what we are slowly learning of power.
