94 Bus, Sunland, Los Angeles
By Erren Gerraud Kelly

Black widow on
the 94 bus
she’s a rock and roll
punk goddess
a goth angel, clad
in black
from head to toe
she wears a legacy of
on her neck
her pale skin day
fighting against
her violet eyes tell stories
of the blues
like the cameo on
her neck
she’s a moment to be
black boots walk away in
lock step
to my heartbeat
