Day 28: Bridges

So many bridges 

Between my shores and others,

But no matches

To burn down the ones that I should.

I keep passages open

With naive hope 

The others will be nice,

But they aren’t always nice at all.

And now I have matches

But I’m too scared to use them - 

But my customs unit is poor and it’d be better to close some transits.

still, I’m counselled, 

“Don’t burn your bridges!”

But I don’t know if I can do this 

Anymore.

A Tale of Two Bridges - Portland, Oregon. On the left we have the 88 year old Sellwood Bridge. On the right is the new Sellwood Bridge that will open in 2016. It will be a big improvement with pedestrian and bike paths on both sides. A much needed upgrade.
