016. 151 (northbound)

by John Herzog

your limbs trembling towers
your breath a lonely cloud against the charcoal sky,
cold is the night
while you await the northbound bus home

but it always comes


Author's Note: CTA, bus route 151 (northbound).

"your breath a lonely cloud" - what a great line, it just makes me shiver. Even the title with "north" in it makes me think winter at this time of year. Few lines that convey a lot of information.
