Traffic

I sit and I sit

We aren’t going anywhere

Too many people

Too many cars

This leads way to wandering thoughts

Grocery lists

To-do lists

Phone calls to make

Bills, which still need to be paid

My car needs gas

What’s the price of gas?

How long could I sit here

Why is my current destination, even important

So many questions

So little answers

I toy with the radio

Talk radio

The great time waster

Blah, blah, blah

I can hear the talking, but can’t take it in

I’m consumed with boredom

And I sit here

In this stop-n-go lifestyle

Which numbs me to the bone

I work thoughts, about what else I could be doing

I could be on a beach

Or taking a quiet nap in my hammock

But these thoughts just cause a frown

For now

I sit and I sit

Not going anywhere

Too many people

Too many cars
