After His Arrival

by Lorraine Caputo

Near-full-moonlight bathes 
rooftops & thin streets, the flag- 
stones of the ancient 
plazas. One church, another 
yonder toll the midnight hour. 
Then fireworks echo 
through the Old Town, auguring 
the arrival of 
Christ’s spirit wandering in 
this empty Palm Sunday night.
