These Steps

“These Steps”

Wrought iron
twisting
ancient
metal
You walked
these
steps
with me
long ago

Your first
boat ride
Your first
ferry
Your first
time across
The Ohio
River
The flood
wall 
you asked
about 
Katrina

Blue skies
blotted out
by hatred
lies and
separation
For now
we remain
apart 
severed by
life

Wrought iron
twisting
ancient
metal
seagulls
the wheel
of the 
ferry boat
the water
The steps
you walked
these
with me
once

Deven 
I miss you
always

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
