That Bridge

It’s a long walk to the middle
Of that bridge, of that bridge
And the chill is fierce
On the side of midnight you chose

I want to think that as the breeze
Whistled through the wires
You were reminded of the trees

The trees to which we nailed
Precarious floors, steering wheels
Dread pirate flags

And the splintery fence paling plank
Out over the yard
How each of us knew it was much
Much too far to jump

And how each of us was lying
That we had done it
We had done it

I like to think
that’s why you didn’t
at least, if not for love
