The steel bridge
Spanned the bay
And the fog floated
Slowly over the waves,
And the midnight ships
Glided to the other side.

sunset_bay_400_01The sounds
Of clanging metal
Masts punctured the fog
And the silence of the night, 
And the cats disturbed
Metal garbage cans
In the back streets
Of the docks eating
Discarded fish heads
Wrapped in yesterday’s
Newspapers.

The bay was sleeping
Except for a few open
Windows where the darkness
Was illuminated by moments
Of red glowing cigarette ash
And shining sleepless eyes
Staring out over the bay,
At the steel bridge,
And the fog.

The bay was asleep,
The world was asleep,
We were all asleep
In those days except
For a vigilant few
With foreboding eyes
Fixed on the horizon
And the steel bridge.
