    Brief Bus Stop

    she sat there like a photograph
    of someone much further away
    we shared a brief bus stop
    on one of those inbetween days
    she gave me her smile
    and I looked underneath
    at the lipstick on her teeth

    she asked me for a light
    and if I thought her hair looked okay
    we grew out of the small talk
    into stuff strangers just don't say
    we discovered we are both
    pleasently furious half of the time
    when we're not just toeing the line

    we sat underneath the shelter
    as the rain came down outside
    the bench was cold
    against the underside of our thighs
    I said I think we need new responses
    each question's a revolving door
    and she said, yeah,
    my life may not be something special
    but it's never been lived before

    we decided our urgency will wane
    when we grow old
    and there will be a new generation of anger
    new stories to be told
    but I said, I don't know if I can wait
    for that peace to be mine
    and she said, well, you know,
    we've been waiting for this bus
    for an awfully long time
