Old Car1

motor sounds. loud, large motor sounds drives me into panic. my mind and body cannot handle it. the engine will eat me alive. it will attack me and shred me, chew me up and spit me out.

must control myself. grown men are not afraid of large trucks, motorcycles, cranes, dumpster trucks and the mere sound of rumbling engines. grown men don’t panic and flee in panic. i need to get hold of myself and walk calmly by that monstrosity. every fiber of my being is vibrating in tune with that sound, and still, stuck in the interior of that rumbling i must get past, looking all cool, calm and collected – when in all truth i want to scream: TURN OFF THAT ENGINE before it eats me alive!!!
