ARCHES

Out from under the arches
altars the position of things
changes the view, back from
the bridge, its expanse fully
visible, breadth and width
end from beginning, away
from shadows, in full light
of day, one can safely cross
the abyss, churning below
gargling gargoyles, hidden
in darkness of shade, stone
pillars, firm, steady support
against onslaught and rage.
