2021 Poetry Marathon, Hour 3

For Hour 3, I used both text and visual prompts.

I’d recognize that bridge anywhere
I don’t remember where it is
but it’s the one they always show whenever they talk about that park

I’d recognize that bridge anywhere
I don’t remember where it is
but it’s the one that looks like Graffiti Bridge after 30 years of unchecked foliage growth

I’d recognize that bridge anywhere
I don’t remember where it is
but it’s the one you always have to say you recognize because everyone knows that bridge

I’d recognize that bridge anywhere
if I’d ever seen it before

But I haven’t
so I’ll have to concentrate on the woman in the magenta dress
stalking the two people having a conversation on the bridge
