colonic irritation... enzymeless

149 bus from Stoke Newington to Hoxton
Bendy bus
A giant gurgitating stomach
Seats and standing and aisle
A bus-sized intestine digesting people for five
fifteen minutes and then
excreting them out the sides onto the pavement

The ruminative road-rattled churn
The soft shoving grind of bodies
The air and light and shape and shadow slowly pushing against each other
Freezedried in an enzymeless light
A fecundless bright
Maintaining/ Inanimating them in unreaction

The Vancouver buses are also bendy buses
Yet they do not
Repeat not
Feel like colons

So why do the London bendy buses
Feel like stomachs
Digesting people?
