Crash

A bus ride.
On the bridge.
Casual conversations.

Crash.
Windshield shattered.
Nobody injured.

A ladder.
It slid.
And slammed.

Pause.
Resume.

No ignition.
Bus stagnant.
Alight.

A short walk.
Board.

Drive past.
And all this while;
traffic continues.

Seems like someone is a little bruised..or am I imagining things?
Nice piece..
the perfect choice of words to create an imagery and even a greater implication.
Loved it!

Heya... got worried for a moment that you were IN the crash... then on reading some of the comments I thought something was wrong with your eyes....

Sigh, must slow down & read posts properly.

Hope you're all well!

"Uh Oh" was my first reaction.. but seems it turned out alright.. I like the way u've pointed out that the traffic continued as usual... a lot life other things in life.. things happen to people and others walk on by, oblivious or choosing ignorance.. life goes on.. for someone atleast!
