crossing over

it’s not going to end well if they can’t cross the river
son saying independence day is any day now
daughter stitching an eye back in dolly

they built sutliff bridge where they did for good reason
having been damaged only recently
the local astronomer sends them another way

it’s either a death trap or the ultimate tipping point
& though contradictory on the surface
what happens next makes perfect sense

april two thousand twenty-two
