taxi driving

this cab driver is friendly, he says
beijing is shaped like a square
shanghai is shaped like a football

he has two degrees in physical education
wants to coach vollyball
snow falls in chicago, today he drives a cab

I am tired, sick
I seek refuge
in this small screen

talking to an older friend
on a mobile phone
would be rude
to my new friend here

I tap away
disengaged from my driver
