Bus, circa 2009

the simmering city blurs into light and dark
like a film passing by unfocussed
its background music – the sound
of passive humans progressing
from nowhere to nowhere
like the reflections of buildings
smudging the street into watercolour works
disturbed by poor children
holding unsold balloons
wondering how the future must be
