Fake Bus Stop

From the eighth floor I could see the fake bus stop.

It was raining again in Portland.

The rain was real. The bus stop was not.

Bright lights and a glistening Don Quixote waiting to appear. Lights wrapped in plastic and blocked streets.

The next day it was all gone but the bus stop.

Two guys with a flat bed truck drove up.

They took out the screws attaching it to the pavement and used a crane to lower it onto the back of the truck.

The following day even the fake bus stop was gone.
