BUSSSSSSSSSSSS
by April Halprin Wayland

Brakessssshisssssss
wheelsssssssssqueal
busssssssssssssssss
sssssssssssssto-ops.

Step in! Step up!
the doors shut
the coins clink
the driver gives a friendly wink

She presses down the fat gas pedal
a creepy sound of scraping metal
the bus roars
an old man snores

Brakessssshisssssss
wheelsssssssssqueal
busssssssssssssssss
sssssssssssssto-ops.

Step down! Step off!
Bus breathes.
Busssssssssssssssss
leaves.
