“the only people who ever get anyplace interesting are the people who get lost.”

catchin’ a cab

i was
already in
the cab

driver told
me to
get out

his “kind”
of people
wanted in

i didn’t
argue, i
got out

a bystander
said “you
should’ve stayed

as if
you won’t
pay money”

i stood
on the
busy road

waiting for
the next
empty cab.
