I heard it in the streets

“The unbroken world is coming,
(it must be coming!), I heard a choir,
there were clouds, there was dust,
I heard it in the streets, I heard it
announced by loudhailers
mounted on trucks.”

—from “Ode to the Unbroken World, Which is Coming” by Thomas Lux

(See the whole poem at Poets.org, who shared it recently on Twitter, thereby introducing it to me.)
