The Bus Always Crashes by Adam Levon Brown

Tilting the axis of my world 
and contemplating saffron regrets
mixed with honeyed apologies 

Magnetic memories to cling
to in the distant lonely hours
of the night-side cable crossing

between public transit.
Riding with no real destination
in mind, only a fading image

in the hazy cobwebs of the
mind's eye. Utterance of 
a name I recognized brought

my psyche to a dead-as-graveyard-roses
halt. My Realization is that I'm running
from my past.

There is no exit;
because the past is gone
and all I need is to forget.
