Alcoholic Rivers


I've crossed the bridge
now I'm lost
again

Alcoholic rivers
riding horseback
blindfolded

I guess
you can say
I am lost again

There are faces
which smile back

They are warm
yes
but it's still snowing

My father's tears
form circles
around unemployment lines

I give him
a smile
but yet
it's still snowing

So now we both
cross bridges
over alcoholic rivers

Riding on horseback
we cry and chase our tails
when it snows

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
