At the bus stop


Junkie seeks a fix
Dealer smiling grim reaper
Waiting at bus stop

Pregnant mother rests
Glances at pram before her
Waiting at bus stop

Incandescent light
Shadows cast indelibly
Buildings turn to dust

    A sketchy motley crew! And a great response to the prompt! πŸ˜€

  6. I like the structure to this piece and the repetition of that line packs a punch. Thanks for linking up!
