public transportation taught cosmic misunderstanding

 

this man screaming philosophy
on the bus in the morning
shit his pants
standing right there
to prove nihilism was real
and nothing mattered 

his face went red
brows scrunched
as he yelled
“the universe is falling from my asshole
and you assholes don’t get it at all”
and then the whole tram started to smell

everyone looked uncomfortable
stayed sitting silently
but i smiled at him and started to masturbate
next to a newspaper boy snorting cocaine off his keys

the old woman at the front started crying
for god’s mercy
so the driver pulled over for a smoke
and the philosopher who shit his pants,
jittery paperboy, and me
laughed and continued
cos we were the only ones who knew the joke
