Two Views From The Erskine Bridge. - Poem by Dan Reynolds
When I was twelve…
I know not where my spittle went
when I spat off the Erskine Bridge.
I watched it dance, trapeze and see-saw
Ever-diminishing on its descent
Like the dot on the old valve TVs.
Those first elasticated exaggerations
Like a spinning chest-expander
Threatening to separate
Then leaving my focus
on its windy way to Old Kilpatrick’s pavements.
When I was 49
Oh my what wondrous spans of steel
These man-made structures
fill me with dread.
My gaze interrupted,
my hand raised to feel
where some little bastard
has spat on my head.
