Overt Similes

Are like little footbridges
Over artificial streams.
Bridge essence is metaphor.
Causeways of metonymies
And synecdoches connect
Islands to their continents.
Soft travel until we face

The chasm. What trope could fly
Kite string clear across that gap?
There's a secret rhetoric
For life on the precipice
Over the unbridgeable
That's perpetually in sight.
