Auckland / Teacher
I am on a bus. It's a bus I often catch, a bus out to a pokie bar on the outskirts of town. I usually don't talk to the people on this bus but there's something about the day today. A feel of togetherness. My eyes hurt from staring at a screen for too long. We get to the pokie bar and the driver tells us this is the last time he'll be doing the drive. We talk and reminisce.
