WHAT'S THAT CALLED?

You know that feeling at the airport
Watching passengers arrive
As you’re about to board?
Or at a restaurant
Asking for the check
As the guy at the other table is about 
To devour a 28 ounce Prime Aged Porterhouse steak? 
What about when you’re leaving the beach
Sunburned & sizzling after many hours under the scorching sun
Observing fresh incoming beachgoers unload their gear…or
On the highway,
Stuck in a bumper to bumper traffic
While others drive briskly back home
On the opposite lane…
What’s that called?

    This is an interesting poem. I like the flow of the words and the use of the rhetorical questioning technique at the end. Certainly this impacts the senses and in mixed in many ways with emotional outpouring. Great job! ~Joseph

    Um...normal life? Karma? Always loving the anticipation of things? Hating when good things end? Hating traffic? It's called a thought provoking write. It's quite like a riddle that I feel I haven't answered. Pretty cool. Though I am wondering if there really is a specific answer? Always a pleasure to read you Jaimie! Love, Shar xoxo
