The bridge was off

an excuse practised daily by
cyclists with one foot on the ground,

kids with half-done homework poking out of
half-zipped daysacks,

shoppers carrying tubs of ice-cream
in flimsy Morrison’s bags

suited men in important cars en route
to important meetings,

undertakers in hearses stopping themselves
from waving to friends,

a woman saying boats should wait regardless
of tides,

but not by the bridge-keeper fed up
of repeating

We can’t predict the times when this slice of A49
will swing sideways.
