of bridges

if my back must be a bridge,
then so be it

the weight of new
connection is a welcome burden

walk upon this back,
let my vertebrae lead you
to an Other whom you fear

meet upon the curves of
my spine, learn each other’s truths

we will combine our pain,
our joy, our power

if my back can be the bridge,
then so be it.
