The suspension bridge could go like seven thousand feet
but it’s seven plus one from here to where I want to be
MC Frontalot, “Floating Bridge

Bitwise, volts like gated salmon rise
past steps triangulated top to toe,
roil and stack to span the demarked gap:

I’m up by my bootstraps,
heel down like a pile against the surf
where barnacles draw down in intertide,

assemble, layerwise, six plates to shelter
fringe that sweeps the sea like
my eyelashes on your cheek,

my hem along the clover.
Stepwise I fly to DCA,
to BOS, to ONT, to wherever

I haven’t been and want to go. Pixelwise
I stitch an eight-bit heart
back to my sleeve, shed all

the detritus of memory petalwise
like a Yoshino in May, with a heliotrope’s
flex, sunwise in the blue.
