By
They all rush in
Bound by a common need
All stuck together
Between the departure lounge and the sky beyond
Past a crush of school children and a rushing businessman
Hand on the wallet
An Esquire in one hand
A tepid bagel in the other
The constant buzz of lights
Like electric cicadas
24 hours a day
Rush
Lull
Rush
Lull
The ebb and flow of people
Shoes tapping
Slipping and sliding across slick floors
All pushing together
In an endless sprint toward Gate C.

Great poem I'm a huge fan of poetry as well as other things. Just saying that that was a great poem.
P.S. I gave it a 5 on the rating up there.
