RT Fare Increase
We are also this city. We ride
because wheelchair can’t equal housebound.
Paratransit downhoists us outside RT HQ.
We sit-in, patient; though our feet be bent, our grins
run straight. In solidarity, everybody rattle
your pillboxes. Our headrests are lambswool,
our lives crocodile. RT staffers must think
“public access” means propping up a MegaVox
on top of a stamp dispenser. This crackles,
burbles from inside to us pavement-struck:
I need this service … badly … versus Here …
some sample comparative fare structures … I think
I’ll just wait some more; read my Max Brand oater.
When you say comparative fare structure—smile!
