Car Trip

Only five minutes until we leave
A mad rush for shoes
A coat slips to the floor, forgotten

Bags thrown in the trunk
Sliding into seats
Four seat belts snap into place

The engine roars to life
The radio flickers on
Music fills our ears

A pause to get the mail
A jump into and out of the freezing air
And we’re on our way

Down the road
Past the familiar buildings
Into the broad unknown
