Bortherly Love (excerpt)

Daniel Hoffman

And they shall come together in a city,
          
           City of lovely purposes
          
upholding balconies
          
espaliered on walls
          
and windows
          
reeling with cerulean light—

            where each breath's an anthem and each glance a hymn,
           
here is the spirit's home.
