each second the same
a millenium

     the monks chant an ancient sutra

still those elbow patches
on his jacket

An ancient watchman
makes his rounds

one cone of light coming
from a cloud

by the Millennium

looking around in wonder
four new figures needed
creating the millennium

into the new millennium,
the nun says a prayer
