At The Bus Stop
Ulysses Hero

     
     At the bus stop

     In the shelter of the bus stop
     a metal awning captures the rain,
     filters sounds as a church choir
     with its even tempo and holy calling;

     and the clock, in the church tower,
     at the end of a mist squalled street,
     chimes slow in a teutonic rhythm
     adding a rich and wholesome beat.

     If one's mind can break into song
     with others who now hum the same,
     with nod of head and odd thrust of shoulder,
     wouldn't it be nice

     to turn and face a shop window
     and watch your dressage in the glass,
     smiling as you tap your feet.
     You turn, spin, look diligently for a partner

     and find others are doing the same:
     a young woman with red jeans and green scarf,
     the one with blond hair and a cute laugh,
     asks you first, not openly of course

     more a delicate raise of an eyebrow
     and strangely erotic in its urbane slyness;
     and off you go. You don't move of course,
     feet are gum to the pavement;

     it's all in the mind, in a smile, in the look,
     and you, in your own way [as all men do]
     answer with a wink, nod your head, tap a foot,
     then waltz down the street-

     passed the cinema and on to the chip shop
     spinning dizzy on vinegar rich air.
     She, Ginger Roders,
     you, Fred Astaire.

     To meet in the street, at the bus stop
     near a drain, and skip, and dance, and jig,
     the soul and mind the same; to sing with throbbing heart
     and laugh with brimming eyes

     while suited men clap with a flick of their ties
     is the place to be. Time moves as a tumbling rock
     at the bus stop; one moment its half past three
     the next another week.

     You gaze into the eyes of others, in the queue
     under the shelter, all moving to the drumming rain,
     the beautiful orchestral rain, and the bus,
     the number forty two, comes all too soon.

"To UH; Hey man, I've been there, and, great stuff. But let me throw you one pointer; Ginger's last name is spelled Rogers. By the way, thanks for the positive review on ''Ghost town.'' But, unfortunately, due to limited time, the final chapters of Ghost Town, Redemption, will be put off indefinitely, and Letters From The wasteland will be deleted pretty soon. For now, I have to stick to short shorts, which Im good at, even though graphic, until my work schedule changes. right on and write on, Doc" -- david ''doc'' byron, vincennes, usa, ind..
