Pomona is a Woman and City

(shaken by your beauty, shaken by your beauty: Paterson, WCW)

Pomona is a Woman and City

   She stands up in a library glass case

the fruit she extends on her palm glistens

while across the avenue a long day

casts no shadow on protected children

though it may burn, squelch, and singe with anger

the boys and the girls no longer wonder

“who will keep us safe from government?”

For she is tall made of marble carved clear

heroic, able, she banishes evil

the hems of her skirt mercy embroidered

no furrow appears in her memory

for peace, beauty, prosperity, and wealth

will bless all the people what they have tilled
