Two girls on a bridge face each other from either end.


One to the west and one to the east, they stare in earnest in opposite directions.

What hope lies on the other side of that connection?


One is looking for the human soul that the literature says used to exist.

The other seeks a home that stands on solid ground and doesn’t shift.


So one runs from the emptiness of a world that has too much,

while the other runs from the tyranny of not having enough.


If only the two girls understood that bridges burn and power will move to another place.

Happiness lives in what one seeks to see, not what exists in another’s space.
