stepping onto a city bus

stepping onto a city bus takes courage,
poverty, determination; you
never know what’s going to happen
on the city bus:
heated debates
drug deals
soft porn scenes
fights
stabbings
laughter
ignorance
friendship.
stepping onto a city bus shows you care
about the destination,
that you’ll take the city bus to get there.
drivers range from kind to wretched,
people is all they are
and driving is all they do.
stepping onto a city bus can take it out
of you,
bring more people into your
life who watch you travel through town
with a book they wish they had so
they
smirk,
turn up their headphones and
lean their head back, hoping to annoy
anyone within their range.
