The Bridge

The Bridge
For 5-6 billion, one digit more or less,
Glistening pearls dance
Fronting the sun’s magenta swath
Thin fog-line enveloping the Farallons.
A tedious, horrific jam evokes
The glimmering necklace hung above choppy water,
A necklace of elegance I wish I could
Drape around your silky neck.
As fiery October cirrus
Silently proclaim peace and
For just that moment, the love I feel for you,
The fading life and light of day,
So healthy you
Detestably fragile I.
The moment shattered by
Pragmatic analysis and raw solution.
