POETRY

Waiting for a transfer

I am
underneath
the overpass

with the sh*t
pigeons
and the
broken glass

waiting
for something
to come
along

but …
Twenty Two’s
screeching brakes
will have to do

Maybe tomorrow
my number
will come

I’ll leave
the underpass
and its sea
of broken glass

Until then …
I take my place
in line
