I started my bus journey
only a half a dozen minutes late,
at about 22 to eight.
And then I almost immediately chastised myself,
reminding myself that I’m straight –
aren’t I ?
He left a few hours later at
some unnamed town.
The hair of the man in front of me
struck me as a shock of fuzzy
almost afro-style, grey hair;
it was amazingly large;
and amused me.
I found myself having
fantasies of a young woman passenger;
and what we might
silently get up to
in the dark of night.
And I watch her sleep
I know that they will
remain just lush
fantasies of mine.
