M4 Drive In

The road out of London is congested. There are brake lights on the bridges – four thousand tons of metal stopped against the sky and chipped with airport gold. A shapeless sun pulsates through the cars’ breath – a sunset into which we queue.

    I like it … short, sweet, to the point.
    Great last line!

  2. I hate traffic jams but they’re better if there’s a decent sunset to look at, although cease to be entertaining if your car still hasn’t moved after the night arrives.

    Nice last line. I feel there’s more.
