NaPoWriMo #12

I wrote yesterday’s poem yesterday but didn’t get it posted until now.

Bus Shelter

bus stop gossip
cat lady cackles
what’s wrong with that?
what’s wrong with that?
biding time in the westcoast light
canes and swinging legs kicking
heart-stopping, syrupy sweet pop
to increase the thirst
as two blondes saunter past, absorbed,
legs and arms worshipping the sun
better than a kick in the pants
better than a kick in the pants
greasy smell of fake food feasts
the bright dots of shopping bags
walking their people around around
the shopping mall sidewalks
crows swoop and snatch
two flags wave on.
