Internal organs vibrating; anticipation builds.

Arms held aloft-fists clenched.

Sentries stand at the border, arms folded and chins held high.

Feet planted firmly-taking root so as to stem the tsunami.

The music slows, heralding the imminent storm;

The eye of which defies science-its pupil dilating.

The music again builds; its presence intimidating the lights.

Elbows collide and sweat flies.

Bodies spin and bounce.

The sentries, pinball wizards whose folded arms occasionally extend to flip the ball back in play.

Behind them, a sea of people moving as one; the eye prevented from averting its stare.
