5:50 p.m. to Fleetwood

Day 9, PAD Challenge. Prompt: A "time of day" poem.

the day done, the noose of
the tie loosened, the crack
of a can opening, homeward they
go, this one working on a
crossword, the other ripping out
an article sssssssst from a
magazine, another TALKING TOO
LOUD on their cell phone

click click click click down
the aisle
tickets, please, tickets

the doors open to humid air,
another day done
another to come
