The Bridge

Deaf; but always listening
Mute; but it seems to say
cross over don't stop in the middle
there's hope across the bay. But sun set reveals

A shrinking shadow on the water far below and whispering
screams of desperation unable to cope with the status quo
from ghostly forms walking on the bridge with the golden name
invisible; but to each other; no more to cry in vain.
