SHE HELD HER ORCA

She held her Orca

card against the yellow

machine, and it made the

loud beeping sound

indicating

she

was

clear

to ride

any bus

or train in

either direction.

She walked toward

a busker playing

the violin, who

looked like

he probably

had another

job. She stopped

imagining she was

in a hurry,

and

listened.
