Down Naughten Street a stranger walks
the former “Irish Broadway”,
Now warehouses and non-descripts
Prosaic as the day.

What interest would he sure provoke
if this be eighteen-eighty!
Fueled by Finney's "Time and Again"
I’d follow like a matey.

Fast he walks to young St. Patrick's
Worshipping in Latin
Swimming in the pre-modern Faith
Chin above the patin.

Greek myths flatten to soap operas now
Brilliant men seem dull,
Pascal accused us of needing war
Ending ennui's lull.

The answer lies if we could just
move faster than light's speed,
or see the world through eyes less blind
awakened by the Creed.
