6. STUCK IN TRAFFIC
Brakes slammed hard!
Traffic comes to a halt!
The ambulance light flashes
as it navigates on the emergency lane.
Cannot move forward or reverse.
Stuck in traffic!
Claustrophobic , confined to the interior of my vehicle.
The heat rises from the black tar
in waves of smoke,
mixed and mingled with exhaust fumes.
The air con splutters to a stop
Sweat now trickles down my temples .
The sun visor seems oblivious of its inherent duty.
Weary, tired and claustrophobic,
Stuck in traffic.
