East Liberty


>>

Axiomatic, your invariable response,
'what is the relevance of here? '

This, sacred sphere in infancy,
a place where perception first saw -
people appeared, nature...things.
Dogs, cats, and gnarly old horses
pulling old-doddering carts
for19th-century bastions;
they, adorning idiomatic garb,
still reminiscent in the 40s.

Stark, emanating character,
nature, and earthy being;
The old Pittsburgh and a regional essence -
a prevailing spirit designated and solely there...
CURIOUS MYSTICAL WONDER; and then...
several years later, and into my 30s,
a vision so singular in character,
an inestimable explosion so overwhelming -
beatific splendor -
I shan't presume and define...
maybe the word...
Ineffable? ...BLISS!

Something QUITE obscure
sublunary and...
insubordinate forces!
