idling

Commuter car crossing over one hundred thousand miles.
Driver drifting in a passenger’s seat:
Unmoving unblinking unwavering:
Carried by the current.

Stopping at stop signs
Stopping before starting lines
An engine’s modest revving
A small cry for attention

Pedal held down forced stuck to the floor
Hit a wall or start to steer:
No more sitting parked waiting:
idling
