RE my poem "Torching the Bridge" - now in the 4/24/2001 archive
Mona posted this comment: "The images dance but I just don't seem to "get" what is going on! I want to know what the "ceremony" is!"
MY RESPONSE: I was hoping that the title, "Torching the Bridge" would cover that! LOL. The idea is that burning your bridges behind you (you know, one of those things that your mother told you NEVER to do!)is sometimes necessary, and even becomes a significant enough act that it requires some emotional "ceremony." But it's also pretty scary....
Hence, the poem.
But if I have to explain it, I guess it's still lacking some clarity - I'll ponder this awhile and see what I can do.
THANKS FOR YOUR COMMENTS, EVERYONE!
