I Saw Jesus Today

I saw Jesus today
At rush hour in the Union Square station.
His sandal caught on the hem
Of his white robe, and he looked
Uncertain.
Did I mention he carried a staff?

Just one of thousands
Hurrying, hurtling to or fro
And no one batted an eye
Or took a second look
As Jesus straightened his hair
And searched for his track.

And why should they?
So what if Jesus or Artemis
Or Superman himself
Is spotted running for the 6?
This is New York City
There are eight million souls here,
And saints and saviors
Are everywhere you look.
