The Way Some Would Write a Bridge

i’m going to build this bridge as metaphor
with an arch of words

or suspended by lines
that rhyme

deploying a beam as the grammar
of tension and compression

perhaps a truss to suggests its
complexity of narrative

and consider a cantilever as
mirroring images

alternatively the cable-stay in its perfect
love sonnet sway

or tear the whole fucking thing down for its
formulaic and tell-all twee
