Travellers’ Haiku

Approaching tollbooth
Rumble strips rattle the car
Unable to pay

Carsick and weary
Each bump disturbs my slumber
Landscape unchanging

Backseat blasphemy
Space divided equally
Do not touch neighbor

Noise throughout the night
I stare at the peeling paint
Room is too near pool

Big tractor-trailer
Passing me on the incline
My car is too old

Lying on a seatbelt
Glasses coming off
Must fix them when I wake

Nothing to do
Getting carsick
