a kick from a footless boot

Posted to Action Poetry

waiting for a bus
on line No. 7
i see a man asleep
in the doorway
of an old building
i watch a woman with shopping bags
shuffle on by
i smell mothballs & cigarettes
on the lady standing next to me
a college girl with a back pack
sits down and sighs
i do not enter
when the bus pulls up
'till i am startled
by a kick from a footless boot
