Starbridge—

There’s a wood bridge in Streetport

Rainy people in umbrellas look over the edge

Black women in rain slickers

Puerto Ricans with golden asters

Coconut-bearing lei-sellers from Honolulu

Bums from Chicago in cigarette necklaces

Romans with fire eyes and sandals

Russian stepdancers in silksilver earrings.

Starbridge—

There’s a bridge in Streetfort

Rainy people in umbrellas throw coins over the edge

Make a wish

While silver fleeing angels

Dart into the dark water

Turning to fish.

I just made up Streetfort. This poem is inspired by the picture.:)

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]
