Not in ideas

Bus conductor is routine poet
With ticket punching machine.

With a click, there is a journey
Because he is a bus conductor.

Poem is in things, in machine,
In the click of ticket machine

In the square bag on shoulders
Hanging by  the routine poem.

Conductor is in Bangaluru bus
Not in ideas but in our things.

(After a poem Patterson by William Carlos Williams)
