John Grey

A Conspiracy Theorist
Sits Beside Me on the Bus

Someday, maybe
the FBI will watch
his every movement,
listen in to his every thought
but, for now,
the crazy guy who sits next to me
on the bus
will have to be
content with
my apathetic hearing,
my incurious observations,
my undisguised impatience
to get to my own stop.

John Grey is an Australian born, US resident poet.
