as another school year

draws to a close

my time on the bus

is almost over


i think

i’ll miss

all the action:

who sits with who

who lost their coat

who forgot their bag

who needs a band-aid

who has the wrong bag

who sat by the window last

who didn’t bring their boots

who has trouble sitting at all

who was supposed to stay at school

who is crying, laughing, squealing, bouncing?

it might be me.

“i’d rather go by bus.”
