I had to google the bridge

to write this small poem

about living here for seven months

and the fish I saw last night

flopping in between the lanes

217 feet above Narragansett Bay

5,124 feet from Conanicut Island

6,123 feet from Aquidneck Island

cables casting triple shadows against

the April fog walling off the dark

neither of us quite sure why

we were where we were

but gasping for different reasons
