Longo Bridge

in venice there
      is longo bridge,

joining this to that.

   mud islands in a
seaside swamp,

four hundred bridges
   span everywhere.

we rode a ferry
   to murano,

an island prison
      for artists,
   centuries ago.

there was beauty there
   and tourist trinkets
      by the hundreds.

bridges span

   bridges we build
      to each other,

are sometimes
      very beautiful.
