#1: bus station bathroom/floor tile grout has stealth bloodstains/bleach can’t obliterate
#2: sub-freezing stillness/smart phones to a minimum/because bus station
#3: those with more time than/money mostly ride buses/back & forth nowhere
#4: crane looms large, building/new concrete monstrosity/for “development”
#5: today’s new becomes/tomorrow’s run-down, needing/re-“development”
#6: liquor stores replaced/by wine shops - drunkards okay/if their beer is craft
#7: the poor remain raw/blocked by psychic barricades/removed by high rents
#8: the poor will never/experience “developed”/ - just ride by on bus
