Six Forty Six

“Text the keyword WIN to 200200 for your chance to-”
A sigh, click, sudden silence
Squinting into bright sunlight filtering through tinted glass
Fingers drum along a perfect arc of leather
Dozens tensely perched
Lions stalking prey, waiting for the perfect moment to strike
All eyes are trained intensely on a single fixture
Then
The cold light brings them to life
Beasts spring to life with a dull roar
Barreling towards their destination
Momentum of a great behemoth
But lacking the primordial grace
Rubber veins pump fumes, not ichor
Another dull sigh, a slow grinding halt
The next light turns red and the radio flicks back on.
“-double pay work day! Again, text WIN to”
