Somehow the Sound

Somehow the sound

of automobiles on

pavement a mile away

on a “freeway”


Somehow the sound

is soothing

and is it crazy to

think the same


Somehow the same sound

(but closer) would

be hell it would

bring you to hell

    I usually repond right away–the poems generate enthusiasm. This is another good one.
