Mind The Gap

 Mind The Gap

To be certain our species
would flourish, 

God

constructed a magnetic 
attraction within us

so powerful

that when young Men

were stopped by a deep
and rushing flow of icy

water

or a gaping, precipitous

chasm

rent in the earth,

these self-same Men 
peered forth

and saw 

comely young Women

on the far side
(picking wild flowers).

And then

God

could be certain

bridges would be built.
