The next stop (Day 724)

back and forth  wind-scrubbed rush  

arms laden   low-slung day-glo faces 

intent on the next stop   dragging 

children off their feet  leashed 

dogs straining toward each other  

leaning in to greet a new day’s odors 

and savor the contraband traces 

of a foreign land called Night
