35 Eureka

I’m sharing
the bus with a
smiley faced
helium balloon
that grins as it
bobs up and down–
up from castro
over the edge
down into noe valley
up a crest above
billy goat hill
and down
toward glen park
a buoyant
companion for a
rollercoaster–
the face swivels
casting yellowy
cartoon cheer
at every seat
on our bus
which plows ahead
grinding its chin
as it adds
another gouge
to Miguel Street.
