Bus.

I saw you boarding
Sleepy eyed & apprehensive
Loitering between the doors
Shuffling and fumbling the cards
Snail paced, disgruntled
Heavy breathing
Sweating fear, clinging to yourself.

We are all waiting for you
Take your seat and settle in
The journey begins
In a moment –
Dies shortly after.
Trembling in the shadows
Darting from here to home
& back again

The cogs are screeching
Oil them quick
You whimper
Hands now crushed
By the weight of strangers glare.

Past me once more
You slithered
I said goodbye with a glance
You didn’t see
With your head at your feet

We left you there &
Carried on our way
I wondered
Moments later
If you would ever be found.
