Two skinny kids
wearing
Catholic school
uniforms
throw rhymes
at each
other at the bus stop
their titanium hearts
beating
through starched
white shirts

At the red
light
I try to
write it all down

but the
guy with a
handicapped
tag in his
windshield
lays
on his horn
as soon as
the light
turns green

Maria Mazzenga travels daily from her home in Arlington, Virginia, to her job as a historian in Washington, D.C. and back again searching for poems in waiting. She’s been writing, publishing, and reading poetry for 30 years.
