Be good Bostonians, dear Friends and Readers, and pronounce the C in "Quincy" as if it were a Z!

Going to Church on YouTube

Reverend Matthew
read the Nicene Creed
from a looseleaf binder
as he stood on a green hill
on Nut Island, Quincy.

Waters that stretched
lazily behind him
gave docile assent
to all the propositions
of our holy faith.

This is very nice, a spare, quiet, perfect little poem.
