Sophia
The Incarnation of Sophia

amazing grace

the familiar tune of
amazing grace
calls to thee from
where? what?
that building on the corner
with the stained windows
explaining the story?
that one with the
sandwich board promising
salvation?
that edifice with the
golden columns
declaring prosperity?

no. 
come closer.
