Bridge

If I were to jump from this bridge,
would you try to catch me?
The canyon below is both bed and tomb
for those who dare to defy gravity.
Would you risk your life
to touch me one last time,
or would you stay safely on this trestle?
Such a grand expanse of concrete
and cable, man-made
and full of power and innovation.
I wonder if this canyon ever connected
before some genius engineer
dared to dream something as grand
as this bridge.
And now, here we are,
connected by someone else’s invention,
standing on
another man’s greatness.
Now what?
