Alcoholic Rivers - Poem by Justin Tallman

I've crossed the bridge
now I'm lost

Alcoholic rivers
riding horseback

I guess
you can say
I am lost again

There are faces
which smile back

They are warm
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
