Double-decker bus two children propped up against the window
pooped out from Charlottetown mother still paying the driver
all the change left from the binocular machines
Kathy thought the whales were inside of the ocean
the mother felt against her body her husband held
the new camera from the street craned towards the children
in the upper window Paul pretends to be a boat in a bottle
of glass where the shutter closes and opens again without her
there he watches them float away losing them
in his hand the camera enclosing what remains.
