“The Best Things”

Family and friends,


Warm beds on cold mornings.

An extra blanket, just within reach.

The bus arriving at the bus stop just as you arrive there.

When two things fall from the vending machine, even though you only paid for one.



A good book.

A good book.

“Bus Riding”

Is it fare?

No, really is it fair?

Bus riding folks,

Commute shares.

Empty seats,

Sticky floor.

I feel as if,

I’ve rode before.

Start and stop,

Call bell rings.

Shopping carts,

Stroller things.

Missed my stop,

Traffic jam.

Late for work,

That’s who I am.
