covered

under the covered bridge
hand
covering lens
signalling the best
previous
shot

editor can decide

the river carries
out
the rain
my
childhood meets
my
adult self
across the street
standing under
umbrella
staring back
into
my school face
eyes

covered shots ring out
separating 30 min
of rain
from memories
of an old soldiers
battle field

old man soldier
thins out
young cadets
march in the next
generation

covered eyes
salute from mind
to mine to
yours

we don’t know

even standing
we
don’t
know

under the covered bridge
