Bridge

Headlights on the seldom city streets
Conceive patient beams that
Glow like the rays of dawning day

Pushed to the highest flame they
Sever murky August nights and
Press their image in the gloom

They curve around the corners and
Up the steepest bends, always
Splitting through the knotted haze

And then,

They tread over a silent slip
The slurring beams jostle and sway
And flicker black and white

They are headlights pointed downward
Reflected in the brilliance
Of the calming depths of stream


One last time

A pull
of the rings off your fingers
as you slide them into your front khaki pocket.
A pull
like the wind
trapped in a box sealed with masking tape
and a sharpie scratch of a name.
Like the wind,
trapped in the still air of a bedroom,
fresh from the deep wormhole of your father's throat
after countless years of drinking.
Like the wind,
trapped in a recently emptied home
gazing at the bindings of his dusty photo albums
that have not been opened for years.
A pull like the wind,
holding itself still and apprehensive
as you twist the handle and blow the cobwebs
off of his ancient windows
to let his shadow shine gloriously through them,
one last time.
