anecdote #271 - bus traveller

trim, tailored casual dress
reading Rules for Anarchists

sandals, water bottle, white-haired,
from backpack, sunglasses
its arm pulling spinach along.

clear authoritative voice
minimalist words, no more
gave directions

wanna make that senior life
where I'd break a finger too.

Curious last line.

she could have broken her finger from something bland like tripping, but somehow I imagine it was more like, during rock climbing or being shoved at a political protest.

Had me scratching my head.
