Holiday Traffic

Keep two chevrons apart
is the roadside command
for some of the foot-down way
as we cruise boot-squeezed
with brake lights popping
on this – the first Monday
of the summer holidays

We are driven just one stop
for service station Starbucks
The boys danced to muzak
in the hourly-mopped loos

as we refilled with tea and latte
Then back to the rushed tarmac
and the dash-dash-dash of lanes
to hurtle again through the flume
towards a static caravan in Devon
