In the bus

I am part of different moments
Which stay long enough
To put them away like this
(wrapped in the alphabet)

People come with stories
And I listen to them leaning
against the window seat
And with an occasional nod.
(and half open eyes. )

Some finish them
But mostly they leave it hanging
And rush towards the exit
In an awkwardness of revealing a lot

I try to look beyond
the spots on the window glass
as people disappear along with their stories.

A more telling story occupies the seat
And we start over.
