Piles of human arms and sloppy heads laid
On food-trays of half-eaten buns with cold tea
Magazines, milk bottles, and jackets
Passed us by in a whisk of infinity;
You never once moved but peacefully slept
Just this night----
Amidst the chill of a bus-filled moment.
In deep amens, I hold your face for a while
But time beckons military hours, grating;
I write you a letter of love that never questions
As courage greets me again on enemy zones.
I stay a bit longer even while duty calls
Shall I leave you once more
After a lit embrace seemingly endless?
My only gesture is to let you know of my fidelity
And you rest while I slowly walk out the bus door.
Tell me, who is the better person?
