some famous people lived
before they were famous
or for a brief period
where they hid out from fame
and did ordinary things:
a slow dance to the radio
each other

A bus rumbles by each day
on the last leg of a crosstown journey
stops before getting to Walgreens
a man picks up his backpack
which rested against the sign.
