There is a dreamtime

There is a dreamtime
on buses
in London.

Sitting there
all those hours gathered
like metaphysical
frequent flyer miles

Buys time
in the dreamtime
leaning your head
against vibrating walls,
a tired supporting hand,
gazing out on
pearl-bound nights,
looking at the internal pictures

of your life.
Talking
(dancing)
to the ancestors who
guide your steps
shadow-bound

singing safe your life
from bus stop to
bus stop
of your life.
