Praying Mantis

Praying Mantis

Tram # 109, Eastbound ~ 13:40 pm, Feb 25, 2010

I just saw a man
he moved like a praying mantis
somewhere between
jerkily and gracefully
all thin and long-limbed.

This man above pretty clearly had some ‘issues of the mind’. He was wide-eyed, a bit jittery and jerky, unshaven, rough around the edges and carried a battered, well-worn old orange backpack. I liked him. He had a friendly, loving face…and he was full of stories.
