Went down to the bridge
     pen in hand
     looking down at nighttime water
Opening a notebook now
     water games
     time to start dropping rivers
My heart, black on black, can't be seen,
Mischief wind attacks the pages
     carries them away
     priceless therapy
     scattered for unfriendly eyes:
Nature has been known to work this way.

Went down to the bay
     in the morning

     to stare at the skyline and feel small
There was more water, more wind
     a complete lovely scattering effect
     it carried my papers back to me whole
     home again, riding breezes and reflections
Tried to sneak in cracked-open windows
     to see if people are real
Deep and lonely
     almost hopeful ...
     windows on the bay.

== END ==


I took this photo on I-15 a few miles north of my house.  I know it's the wrong kind of river, but the bridge has a nice curve to it ...

loved this, and the photo is beautiful, almost a counterpoint, yet...a searching road across the darkness and the pain the honest, longing, pondering of life and the "black on black heart" oh, a heart, seen now, within the words, aching, yet hopeful and this, well, beautifully done, for me, much within and love it, yes!

First, I loved the picture, I don't thinl this was the wrong kind of river, although you have a different view, the roads and the highways are a nightmare, espeically when just recently we had a young lady in our state shot, just because she looked like someone the guy who shot here just broke up with,,,sad, but true, certainly has made be have a different meaning on defensive driving,,,

I think "Scott" note capital "S" ... you need to find more places to STAND TALL. Your self deprecating sense of self shines through your poetry. I like it fine, but there has to be another more positive way.
COME TAKE A LOOK AT OUR PLEA FOR TWO KIDNAPPER CHILDREN. Maybe you can make a worthwhile contribution for these two innocent kidnapped children with a father who is going out of his mind, and has killed once already. Think abut it and be welcome to our joint effort to try and help the children. Invited by Linda Hill & Bill Murray.
