School Bus

The boy learned more about the world from
his vinyl seat beside the sliding window
clapping about railroad crossings,
and potholes that Spring laid down
and once driving over a German Shepherd,
drinking from one — each time,
the window kept itself together,
brightly rattling on its yellow whistle song.
