step outside your front door
stomping through the asphalt
you are a living livewire
the current that runs through these concrete canyons
even though currently the crushing weight
caves in like an open mouth to consume you
shed your shoes you'll be faster
yesterday hanging over our heads
like a reminder
of what we left behind
and what can still catch up to us.
From Wikipedia: The Oberbaum Bridge (German: Oberbaumbrücke) is a double-deck bridge crossing Berlin's River Spree, considered one of the city's landmarks. It links Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg, former boroughs that were divided by the Berlin Wall, and has become an important symbol of Berlin’s unity.
