Crossing The Chesapeake Bay

grand serpent of engineering
ripping across the bay breeze and chop
carrying adventure down your spine
and no shoreline to be seen for miles and miles
and more
then all is gone
and under you travel
with aquatic tons overhead
like space warp striplights for a moment
then sunlight again
could we be lost at bay?
you giant serpent of engineering
with your three-toed pillers supporting
and long winding ways
tail lazily laying atop Virginia marsh
your mind focused on advancing beaches
