Tuesday Morning

This morning
I got a seat on Muni
I read about poetry
Exit at Montgomery
Same 26 concrete steps
Same turnstile
Same walk up escalator steps
Greeted by warm air on Market Street
Walking behind a guy in shorts and a puff of smoke
Blew back and I caught an unsought whiff
He set a small joint down on the window ledge
And went in the café where I buy my morning coffee

Beautiful. I love how you lined up each line so they look like steps!

Are you secretly some kind of genius?
