A Blurring World

solo, singing silently on the bus,
out the window
the world pass by
is part of my daily routine.
I find a blurring world.

I see
the tall green trees
turn into
blurs of green and brown.

The cars, like charging bulls
zip by
without a care in the world.

The people appear
in a seeming instant.

The buildings
come and go,
Legos in the distance.

I try to count
the signs I see,
but a blink: they're behind me.
Soon enough the bus


the stairs
to a different

The bus drives away

and I become
a part of a b l u r r
g world.
