last night

My last thought as yesternight drew to a close: Are we being ironic when we call the hours between 1:00 and 5:00 ungodly?

Thoughts before that? Too many to count. But those that found voice were shared in the context of immediate trust that feels eons older than it is.

My ears are still ringing from the sound under the bridge. And my eyes still burn with the image of the split bridge, gracefully arcing upwards

Revealing stars
and trembling hands.

Then coming back down again
stitching the city together
but wounding the night
as the sky was cloaked
and the starlight vanished from the water
churning below.
