One Lane Bridge

We're all so used to thinking
these covered bridges are special;
we never stop to think
that coming up on it,
you can't really see
what's on the other side.
Not only that, it's a one-lane bridge:
only one can go through at a time.
I'd kind of like to stop here,
photograph the scenery --
anything to delay
that harrowing moment
when you pull around the corner
only to find yourself face-to-face
with what's coming through
from the other side...

I find the covered bridges to be scariet at night. I also find them fascinating, imagining all the stories they must harbor.
