On the Bus

image

Sitting cooperatively
In a rectangular shaped prism
Above a vibrating road,
Floating on pneumatic tires
Up and down we go.

The bus’s mathematics
Organises passengers
Into symmetries of intimacy,
But tangential bodies
Concertedly avoid contact.

Destination’s considerable distance
Rendered proximate
By daily ritual,
Alighting at the bus stop
We go our separate ways.
