Today I was telling my neighbor, Paul, about that period of time when Dan decided he didn’t want to take public transportation anymore and was running or skateboarding from borough to borough. One of my favorite images to conjure up is of Dan flying down 2nd avenue on a skateboard with his man-bun and cut-off jeans.
Man in Transit
Impolite implications pose a threat of disrespect
But consumption of slight altercations employs frustration
This man in transit is too easily bothered
He woke up that way
Regardless of who’s to blame
His reactions will be the same
At the rise and fall of each day
He’ll be intolerant anyway.
