a bus exhausts at the exchange
of people. on the stop itself
someone has posted a kid’s face
with the word SNITCH above it
the flyer has pull-tab bottoms
like you see on NEED ROOMMATE
listings, or ad spots
for math tutors. several tabs
are already taken
I take the rest, holding them
in my palm like betting slips
maybe I will lay them somewhere
on the chest of a hill, or
the bottom of a well
are we sure this isn’t Hell?
all we do is tell each other
what other people have done
