Surprise And Joy At A Fireside: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Free Verse

How oft/
have we gathered,/
’tis eventide,/
to listen to calm,/
followed by/

What a great surprise/
and fun joy/
to expect deeply spiritual
but first

and ragtime
from the pulpit instead.

(It’s the chapel, you know!)
But those
in the know
held up Fosse Fingers
and waved Jazz Hands.
