a level view over a level motorway
on the near horizon as cars speed by

boxes of painted steel
appearing only for a second before disappearing

an extenuating circumstance
and a great deal of unease

conveyed through thick smoke
drifting unsolicited through the air

if only they could go away
and i could be inside
