The Bus Driver at the Lights (Looks Like Elvis)

The bus driver

At the lights

Looks like

A sixty something



Who would be

About eighty-five

By now

So I guess not

But guessing is half the fun


I wonder if

The King



In a new life



In the South Wales valleys

On the green, green grass

Of a home

He had never known



He goes to the Elvis convention

In Porthcawl

And always comes fifth

In the lookalike competition


Though he doesn’t mind

He’s just happy

To be

With the people

Part of the everyday


He smiles gently

At me

As I cross the road

And he drives off

Into another life
