Saturday commute cix: "Near the road and the small bridge"

     The face of heads
  In a corner the sound of a car
             Everything's asleep
  Barely a minute
                  And here I am
  Eyes poring over a caricature
  A fist on full-blown reality


 Damn, it's all so far
 The numbers drift away
 On the board where the
  few letters of a name bleed
        Punctured wind
 The hole pierces the date
 And one passes through
  without batting an eye
 The stains have aged
  on the green-painted bridge

 And the trees passing by
 On the way never a trace
  or reverse
        A man who can't wait
