The bus driver is unsure
if anyone is human today,
I smile, reassure him;
this is the communter world
of silence and uncaught gazes,
everyone who climbs on board
is in another place, detached, alone,
I break the silence
and talk to the person next to me
she transforms from commuter
to human being in under a second,
the conversaation falls into the
rhythm of the bus as it
leaves the city behind;
over the bridge is my town
and as the bus lurches closer
to its final destination
the pace slows
so I have time to notice
the flat bottom clouds.

*A rose is a rose it withers and dies...so long as you keep it the memories stay alive*
