Wonders Come to Pass

By Sam Abrams

in 1856, Walt Whitman predicted
the coming of a race of fierce and athletic girls

...tann'd in the face by shining suns and blowing winds,
Their flesh has the old divine suppleness and strength.
They are ultimate in their own right--they are calm, clear
...well possess'd of themselves.

at the time pretty much everyone thought he was crazy
that those lines were obscene blasphemy
a vision of unnatural women impossible freaks

mornings walking Gracie the collie I see them
on our street running pony tails waving spandex agleam
sun spangled divine fierce graceful fast
visions of the golden age of the dreamtime
here now real

From July, 2014
