riffing (on a greyhound): #6/7

tattoo and tap

the ferocity of wind
buffeting
as a tanker
pumps by

as sudden
and as stark
as earth
on the move

the passengers
sway as one body
to the right
while the bus
shifts left

then
back again

a greyhound
chorus
line

I tap
and twirl

a cane
and a hat

stamping
down
my own percussion

another double trailer

another storm
of wind

my head
a tattoo
against the window pane
