and other days

I'm just a drawbridge

spanning disparate shores


there I am

quietly supporting

a sunny, hot commute


when along comes some

tall ship

headed out for sea


like a blind explorer/leper

out to prove the world is round

or some such nonsense


so traffic has to stop

while I break my head in two

and tip


to avoid giving Olaff

in the crow's nest

an I-beam facial
