St. Mark’s Lions

An American Venice after having taken a one way trip

over the little white bridge in Lindenhurst

which overlooks the canal that separates the times

before and since my teens I now can never return

to the world that once was mine

and St. Mark’s Lions, guarding the road

that leads toward it, will always enforce that ban

The Skeptic’s Kaddish
