Quote: Naruda Poem: Tom Delmore

Naruda:" All paths lead to the same goal: to convey to others what we are."

Radio Jesus

Out on the coast
Christian radio stations
Come in loud and clear.
Over several waves
As if
Walking on agitated water-
Held up by hymn and verve
Could save.

A savior among static.
The smell of salt
Rotting vegetation.
He says: Come rest in me
Broken crab, razor clams
Shattered sand dollar.
For the word
So wet to bring them
That much closer
To the undertow of salvation.
