riding the bus
Usually morning, up at 5:30, pet the cat, dress, then catch the bus
I just bought a car yesterday, a Volvo
Glad I left it at the park and ride for I won't drive it downtown.
Bus on freeway, someone stops causing bus to slam on brakes, hard
I fly from seat, hitting divider behind driver
elbow scraped and skinned, throbbing, Now bruising
Went to work anyway, now I feel it, pain, everywhere
I am sore, I hurt, I can barely move,
Not how I wanted to start my day,
At least I walked away.
