  • in the bus station
    pretending to be a writer
    they say you're a writer
    if you write everyday
    here it is,
    today's write

    the bus station is warm
    i feel like i could get mugged
    at any instance
    people are coughing up lungs

    there is a girl with pink hair
    staring at me
    leaning against the wall
    giggling with her friend

    there is an overweight
    homeless woman
    telling her friend
    you're too good
    for that fool
    just walk away
    her friend says thanks
    and walks away

    there is a guy
    with a frizzy curly
    jew fro
    and jerry seinfeld
    white sneakers
    reading a comic book
    his right leg
    bouncing up and down
    like it was a machine
    not part of him

    and me
    not part of them
