Bus Games

Silk-black skin and long neck.
Graceful, she glances away,
longs for another place,
beyond the burning red-hot glass
of a red bus,
double-deckered,
on a roasted trip with

a man, unshaven and unpruned,
pale and raw,
who mutters to her out-turned cheek,
as if she can hear his stabbing red-hot words,
his obscenities
his taunts
his ignorance,
his out of touch-with-her-ness.

Switched off, but sparked,
she stretches up further,
swiftly turns,
forcing his obstructions,
his workman’s rough and knackered knees,
to turn and
let her go.

She re-aligns herself,
aloof,
on a platform,
at the rear,
back to his front-facing-ness, but

twists,
neck,
rotates,
catches his eye,
smirks,
asserts herself,
elevated.

A game.
