the Danube waltzes between
stony Buda and pancaked Pest

fisted West and Magyar plain
Liszt's dream and Attila's plan

sour cream and paprika
my heart and my heart

the Bridge of Chains
clanking like graffiti

in the limestone light
of a faraway lunar eclipse



the Dancing Bridge

the Bridge of Pain

the Goulasch Bridge

the Bridge of Change

the Marama Bridge
