'Messiah in the Map' by Terry Quick

Here we go

my fingers in between

the pages again

skipping from town to town

in search of an awaiting miracle

maybe the atlas is an atheist

as I lose myself in miles

waiting for the call

to arrive at a standstill

the map as my Bible

the states my saints

my faith greater than truth

that it's out there elsewhere

just beyond the turnstile

the white light of a subway

mistaken for the holy grail

as I stand here

drunk on holy water

this is just like any other place

no grace
