A Banana Tree, With Peppers, Verse 4

by Alexis Marie

A Banana Tree, with Peppers 

[Verse 4 ]

sits in the back of the bus in the corner, 

on the edge,

her back inside the seat beside her. She 

stares out the opposite window 

and thinks of him as the scenery passes; 

A fleeting thought,  

she wonders if some days he 

does the same.
