While riding the 741

Bus Ride

Painting by: Joseph Watson

the bench seat
was hard pressed
against back
legs sitting
watching people
board and
depart across
the town’s stops
writing notes about
the people seen
imagining the lives
beneath facades
dressed in scarves
or baseball caps
holding packages
averting eyes
or groups chatting
among themselves
sights, smells and
sounds consumed
while the big blue
bus eating coins
rumbled through
the city streets.
