Last Bus

(1/26, 1997)

FIRST PLACE


   street musicians
   on the last bus
   compare notes

                          --willard   


SECOND PLACE

   heavy snowfall
   the last bus leaves
   in chains

                  ~Francine Porad


THIRD PLACE


   topping the hill
   the last bus home
   and a yellow moon

BELOW Third PLACE


   on the last bus
   an old woman
   snoring into midnight

                                   --roberta beary  


she lifts her head
from a stranger's shoulder
the last bus

                   Sue Stanford 


     toward sundown --
     just dust devils, tumbleweeds,
     and the last bus

                              Charles Trumbull  


  country road -
  boarding the last bus
  with chrysanthemum

                                 Yu Chang 


   an exchange
   of covert glances -
        waiting for the last bus

                                            Doris Kasson 


through the window
of the last bus
dad's last smile

                         Neca                                    


   six wrapped crackers -
   grandmother walks me out
   to the last bus bay

                                Laura Young  


out of swirling snow
looms the last bus:
        warm driver smiles

                                      ===zeyda===  


  The last bus--
  rolling away into the dusk
  her tears

                 Astrid   


   shy blue eyes
   over the headlines
   the last bus

                      zuiho  


     running late
     around the corner
     the last bus

                        --Jerry Reynolds 


  blue faced man
  on hospital bench
  waiting for the last bus home

                                               Ed Shaheen 


   slouching in line
   the student boards the last bus -
   final exams

                     Paul MacNeil
