Taking A Break

All the activity in the downtown area presents few
opportunities for the workers to find a moment 
to take a deep breaths, to defuse any tension, and 
to gather their thoughts before they return 
to their jobs of lifting, carrying, 
and smiling hospitably to everyone
While the men sitting on the back of their
 truck await directions for delivery, they took a few 
moments to check their messages, 
while the men below enjoy a chat with a hot 
dog vendor during their smoke break.

The first photo caught my eye for that brilliant red backdrop but I do not think that they will sit for long on that tiny sliver of a perch... back to work!
