JUDE OF THE GREY LINE

Black leather cap
Crisp white shirt
Black socks, white polka dots
bright against the background.

The driver counts tickets
Two stacks
Passes out stickers
"Don't leave him!" he laughs when a mother
states her 4 year old
wasn't given a ticket.

A career of field trips, I think
watching as he recounts
wondering how often a guest is left behind
Laughing as one and another guest leaves
for trash dumping or bathroom use.

Recalling classroom trips
Managing 200+ teens
Counting and Recounting
All accounted for...fingers crossed.

Polka dot socks closes the door
And away we go!
