Sunday’s Lesson

Ants and children do not care
about buses. They trample
on timetables; scuttle to and fro;
agitated and elated by crackers
and crumbs from old ladies shoes.

Buses do not care
about ants or children. They zoom
screeching to their stop; accelerate
without mercy for packages,
little legs or brittle frames

eager to break.
