The Moving Car Phenomenon

once a deadly trap
snare that caught the minute the door closed
and in motion I sat immobile
a traveling capsule of disapproval
staring at the road ahead to fight the tears
once upon a years ago
now a pocket of uninterruption
asking questions never answered before
with affection unmatched
a diffidence born in shouts and awkward silence
lessons learned of ago
