LENTEN OBSERVANCE

On a gray 
and gradual-
ly—grayer 

windblown mid-
March 
afternoon—

neither still
winter, 
nor much 

like spring—the view 
from a
raw Chicago avenue

of distantly orangeyellow 
and blue 
and rubycolored—church windows 

looks particularly dark 
and 
unclean 
and 
not special—compared with 

the nearer-by crowded 
mirth of 
pink faces brimming 

that's fogging-
up 
the plain glass 

edifice of Stan's—
indefatigably catholic-
looking donut shop.
