Waiting for a bus,
a man's asleep next to me, his legs in fetal position,
angelically curly hair against a political advertisement:
People walk past us, looking
down on him, making me uncomfortable, therefore,
any figure refers more clearly to the truth the more openly it
shows, through dissimilar similarity, that it is the Medulla Grammatice, a very popular
compilation of Latin words with English meanings, translated
'the core of the grammatical (art)', has been transmitted through
and four fragments (others we know to have been lost). Essentially
the Medulla was indeed
a figure and not the truth by
proximity, while he smiles at something seen only to him.
the bus arrives, I leave him to his dream.
few stops later, I look to the front
of the bus,
where he's standing up,
ready to disembark!
