evening bus home

I will be posting some poems from my main blog. Just to keep this blog going till the next challenge comes calling.

This poem was first published in my poetry blog "urban poems" on 18th August 2009. It was written for NaPoWriMo 2009.

evening bus home



in the bus
we look like
soldiers back
from battle

fatigued
indifferent
some guy massaging
his head

a cough here
a cellphone rings
amidst the drone
of travel

a shuffle of feet
the beeps
of electronic cards
on readers

i try
not to be
distracted
by all these

as the sky
turns
a nasty shade
of grey

i have only
15 stops
or so
before home.
