Night on the C Line

We count the grains of sand under our nails / in an attempt to take the fingerprints off time. / We tell each other we’re the reason the bus is late again. 

A short story in the form of a poem, "Night on the C Line" is named after a bus route that passes by the beach. Read it in full in Volume 14, Issue 1 of The B'K here. Cover image by Dakota Williams.
