The Bridge

D..E. High Fidelity .D..E.  by Elvis
Costello - does anyone else
Remember it?  Tunes take you
Back to places you don't want
To go.

Here, time passes me by.  I live
With silence and a thought and
Now and then a smile
Nicks my lips.  I am happy.

How is that possible after all
That has gone under my bridge?
At present I stand looking
Down, watch the water flow.

I can remember how the water
Feels but at present my skin
Is dry.  I have hung up my
Costume and am happy to

Merely watch the water pass me by.
