at the busy crossroad
the traffic jam 
is complete
all roads crowded
all kinds of vehicles
have to stop
while their futile waiting time
disappears in stress

a cacophony of people
taking along their own
agitated moods
awaiting in silence

the whole area
covered with a smoky cloud
and a  fragrance of petrol

talking about  them selves
they  have to move on
trapped  on the spot
overpowering the impatient honking
of others
still in their cars  in the queue

what should I do

secure the door
wait and watch the scenery
from my point of view
the intimacy
of the space
I feel is my own

open the window
and become a part
of the cram

hearing different sounds
another  way 
homeward bound
