St. Jerome usually can be found
Somewhere along
Seventh Avenue
Sitting in a doorway, his gaze
Turned inward. His doppelganger --
Forged some time in the Ninth Century
Probably by bored Styrian nuns --
Moves around more and takes
A bit more notice of the world.
Occasionally, he buys large bottles
Of Quimera Imperial Stout
To share with his silent original.
His small and skittery miracles
Are much prized by collectors.
