NYC Blessing of Bikes

In front of a Cathedral

a Reverend appears
curious reporters listen –

Is it the bike or the rider
In the spirit – it’s the body
of Christ.

Riders linger as if to see a
spirit rise among them…

A child, one leg –
hobbles on his crutches
a roller skate –
one leg blessed
his mode of transportation.

Then – as if God called –
With all their bikes – inside
of the Cathedral –
A blessing of ones’ child.

Will the Reverend, Father, Priest…
pours holy water over –
handle bars?
