The elderly gentleman
popsicle youth and shopping bag grandmas
Can he be disturbed?
Nothing in his face,
his salt and pepper moustache unwavering against brown skin,
nothing in his pinstriped vested suit and panama hat,
nothing in his concentration amidst transit clangor and disco fever,
nothing but his getting off before his usual stop
tells the story.
