water wept down in streams across the school bus windows brown lines, following clear tears blurring the world outside

remember looking outside seeing the streetlamps burst into starlight as the light diffused through

remember the gravelly tires crunch and shake at each stop, shaking those cold seats with no seat belts

remember, finally coming to a freeway with effort the bus picks up speed I watched cars pass around like rapid fish around a slow tumbling stone

so many people pass that ive never known

I remember what it was like to travel alone
