Short stop

It’s only ten miles to the outpost and at most,
it will take me a day or I can sit here and weather
the outburst
although another storm’s coming my way.

Serenity is two stops from heaven
the forty-nine bus goes past there,
I would catch it if I could be bothered
but something tells me
I don’t have the fare.
