So what are we looking for?

Look at the photograph (click for larger image). What does this say to you? Who are these men? What are they waiting for? What do they want?

Then write, whatever you want. It's your work. It's your imagination. It's your world to create.

The only thing we ask is that you include 2 of the words listed above in your entry.

One entry per person per category. So yes, you can enter one poem and one piece of flash and you all have two chances to win.
