Beneath clouds
That hide as much
Or more than the stars above
This spectral figure on a bicycle
Under the glow of a dim street light

It is an adolescent boy by the way he rides
It is a boy on his way we say
Then to the home of his love

Or maybe not of course
In fact
And yet
It is the myth
We choose to believe

Because in the end
Even when hope and faith
Are no longer alive

It is after all
Though all is finally said and done
However forlorn it is to sing
The only religion we have
