The names blur

From Acts 13-14

The names of the cities
blur in succession,
in the pattern of the work:

Antioch Seleucia Salamis
Paphos Perga Antioch
Iconium Lystra Derbe
Iconium Antioch Perga
Seleucia Antioch

The names of the cities
we touched the cities
who touched us watching
miracles unfold
the sick healed
the lame made whole
the souls saved
and strengthened
the gospel spread
