enshrined on the bridge

a mood piece – can only write these things when happy as Larry.

enshrined on the bridge


tied tight to the railing

a pair of blue bootees

a print of baby’s palm


a cellophane bouquet,

a magic marker plea,    

on a tear splashed goodbye,


‘please, someone, pray for me,

it is all too much to bear,

think well of me… Jilly,’


and in a wine bottle

a candle burned away.
