Safeway Shopping Not Safe

Finished shopping at Safeway—
rolled the cart to Rengstorff Ave,
Bus #40 is coming— running
each hour on Sunday schedule.

Since the sidewalk is sloped,
cart slides down smashing the bus—
"Get your damn cart off my bus!"
the driver yells "Put on your mask!"

I juggled these chores before
boarding the bus with my bags—
the only crisis I have had
during virus shutdown that's bad.
