Passenger Ride

The bus was full and noisy.
I was just a passenger.
Every seat held someone,
something, and more.

Laughter, or audible tones
encapsulated its space.
Screams, and another scream,
and somewhere dreams came too.

Colors seem to pass through
an illuminant window.
Many brilliant hues of reds,
lavenders, and greens too.

I could see shapes.
Of these forms,
somehow it transported
a smile on some faces.

The shadows were there too.
Things stood in them.
Hideous things. Contentious words.
I didn’t look again. I didn’t like it.

I can choose where
I wanted this bus to go,
a bumpy road,
of many challenges.

Or up a scenic, exciting ride.
I wiped away the debris
off the clouded window,
And there I settled into my seat.

  1. I was planning on taking a greyhound out of Kansas this weekend. The crowds on a holiday weekend were a discouragement. But my family should know now if I’m not gone soon, I’ll be gone soon.
