Day 342 – Poor Decisions

Leave a comment

Scene:
Back bumper crumpled inward,
Over fifty passengers silently waiting
Necks aching.
Sleep cycles disturbed.
Behind them, a new BMW with ripped apart passenger side.

Rewind.
Outside of Baltimore, Maryland
Bus hit by BMW going southbound

Rewind.
Collide.

Rewind.
Bus merging into right lane before BMW slams into it.

Rewind.
Laughter and soft conversation aboard the double-decker bus.

Rewind.
Few sleeping or dozing off because of the midnight hour.

Rewind.
Three people get into a BMW.

Rewind.
Three people share a handle of alcohol.

Press play.
