Trespassers travel here with little light
they only map by the closest landmarks
the train switch comes before graffitied girl
graffitied girl before the stairwell door

rusted door before the noose-curled wire
hanging at the platform edge don’t walk
barefoot you are not a monk in practice
don’t wear stilettos either to cross tracks

and no I will not tell you this again
don’t worry if I’ve done these things, been there
sitting out on the overlook don’t ask
but have you ever seen below the bridge

a spitting image that can’t settle down
have you ever caught your doppelganger in the river
