I shatter the mundane traffic of your mind,

For a moment.

I snap at the mundane traffic of the roads,

For a moment.


I screech across the long tongues as my partner sends 

Flashes that don’t belong to your inane 8 to 5.

And yes, why should you care? The best of my calls

Are those that never sound at all.


But why should you care?

Let me pass, and then turn your senses away.

Turn your radio up,

So you don’t hear me cry.


Answer: A service vehicle siren (i.e. ambulance, firetruck)

From character development to rhetorical analyses to the pure vibrancy of words, every part must be savored like a warm pastry, which are one of the things Keesilla enjoys to bake when not reading, writing, or staring off into space.
