Everything That I Might've Said

No. 3 Bus

Travel | April 5, 2009

Long linking snake

clicks.

Scrunched coil twists around a corner, vanishes

within a whir

of machinery.

......Hiss

the sound of the snake,

as it dissipates.

The long snake gone;

no-one remains,

the crowd swallowed, whole

into it's plastic and steel innards.

Eagerly,

the next throng of victims await their fast approaching end,

gleefully leaping into

the

gaping

mouth.

The bus is only three minutes behind schedule today.
