Saint John

from by Della Ray



stood above the city
with bodies held on string
counted all the cars that passed
with the people miles beneath

held my eyes over the edge
out of a fever dream
all the breathing bodies
and the quiet for me

saint john the divine
has his arms around me
stand still in the air
a dream in patina green

a place like a sickness
infecting me
some day i'll go home
but i won't be me.

walk the bridge at night
no stars to be seen
the city burns alight
feel the pylons sink

deep into the river
that could swallow me whole
find darkness at the bottom
and no one would ever know
