|Harvey Milk icon by Br. Robert Lentz, OFM Trinity Stores
By Kit Kennedy
How is it possible to know
someone so well
whom you have never met?
A candle lit. Resisting the closet.
An armband with pink triangle.
Witness the Cityâ€™s namesake
park, granite columns and foxglove.
In those (and these) times can a person
sustain a halo? Yes, a hat for Harvey.
Afterglow of hope and iconographic
as the Bridge.
Kit Kennedy is the Bay Times poet in residence.
