Bus Stop by Jasen Sousa

Bus Stop

Her glass is covered
with torn-off stickers.   Small cracks 
in her frame have transformed 
into large tears that make her less sturdy.

Her transparency has been replaced
by a mucky haze that doesn’t 
allow people to see in or out.

People have tagged 
her skin with magic marker
to let the world know who
has come and gone.

Little shining pieces 
of her existence, what she used to be,
glow in the dark on pavement,
liquor store signs provide light.

The elements have worn her down
to the point that I would not even
recognize her if I were standing inside her,

waiting for her to arrive.
