floating

I was floating

just doing my thing

not taking too much too serious

letting anything that happened

happen

& I took that wave

as far as I could

not that these unfreaks understood

they were fighting each for scraps

morsels

stepping over each other

drawing lines drawn redrawn

over in the sand

& they called me feckless

reckless irresponsible

yet now

I look over their castles

still not getting it

because I can reach out

crumble them in my hands

should I ever feel the need

the hanging bridges of Dar-El

these bridges were constructed

during the 2nd Great Renaissance

when the new technologies came to the fore

using anti gravity powered by solar bricks

the bridges could be built without foundations

saving hours of manpower & costs in construction

serving their communities for centuries

but over time the ground at each end either fell away

due to earthquakes erosion or degradation by use

& the bridges being anchored geo located in place

became useless as connecting bridges for transport

to eventually become the hanging bridges of Dar-El

no longer serving any purpose in use as a bridge

they hang now floating in space as reference points

as they are now too expensive to dismantle

& dangerous to demolish
