Simple Train of thought Poems. Output of a bus driver.

Movie starring Adam Driver
Minnie’s brother.
William Carlos Williams, his favourite
Of the everyday.
WCW in fact a paediatrician
Loving kids, mothers, happy strolls.
Encounters with loyal dogs, mailmen
Milk truck drivers. Plumbers in their Van.
Now Adam’s character visualizes and
Later writes about his findings.
From various routes.
Some busy, or not.
Friends and darling wife
Encourage his Art.
Like the stuff, sort of.
It is definitely not
Wordsworth, Whitman but
Hey, he is the Master of his own output.
Carving a new style
Meeting fellow travellers with
Similar appetite.
Adam is.
In the Town of…
Paterson NJ.
