down the bus
and jump. My wallet
stays in my pocket
and I nearly drop it on the floor. I think I recovered my dignity when I gave the driver
the correct change. I turn around, looking up the bus for a spare seat.
Oh, there's one! Near that girl with the sunglasses.

I walk up the bus and sit down.
You're looking at me. Your face is looking forward but I can see your eyes through the glasses. Is that interest I see?

I can see you perfectly here, admire your profile as you sit there. I look around at the other people on the bus but I always seem to end up looking at you.

I am blatently looking at her now. She's looking at me now, not pretending anymore. I smile. You smiled back!
Wow, is this really happening? You are gorgeous and you're looking at me?

I have to get up now, it can't be helped! The bus stops and I get off but I still have to know!
I'm standing outside of the bus now with nothing to lose so I just watch as she pulls away. She smiles at me regretfully and I can see her deflating.
Oh well, perhaps another time.
