I love the bus because it works on the Sabbath,
because you rent your seat like you rent your apartment,
because your neighbors are there listening to headphones
or staring into books. It can be a night of steady rain
and the lights inside can make it seem like a great hall
moving through the city. And if you're sitting there
watching everyone living, a certainty comes to you
and you know God doesn't ride, that God doesn't enter.
