Bus stopped

Bus late
the late bus
bus deceased
bussed busted
the late Colonel Bust ?
if I laugh I’ll have to pee
must think sad thoughts
think of sleepwakers
fast-talkers, bargain stalkers
strange disordering of
average border states
sleep-walking – walking not woken –
eyelids lowered to – oops,
closing time (corrugated curtain
rolling rumbling tumbling)
sleepwalkers was I saying ?
a danger mostly unto
their own selves
rarely anyone

by far, though
these other crowds
in crowded cities towns
eyes open seeing
still less than
the average
