Disturbing silence

We live on a major road

And for the last five years

I’ve loved listening to traffic

And the soothing rhythm it creates

As cars stream past my windows.

Tonight it’s too quiet.

The drivers are home

Their music is shushed.

I wonder if the drivers are up all night

Like I am

Missing the rhythm of the roadway

Marking the days until we’re free.
