  • Plip philllip, turning of book pages
    sun streams mottled leaves through scrape marked windows.
    Vibrating seat backs, sparking speed
    whining jiggle and skitter scatter of soft screeching.

    The engine vacuuming and shuddering,
    pushing dirty green bullets forward.

    Background sounds come forth
    inane chatter
    mobile bleeps
    soft slip slap of sandals.

    Cacophony of commuting.
