an appropriate response to Christmas traffic

We’re sailing, cruising, down 
dimly lit tarmac roads 
 
illuminated by blinking red 
tailights; nothing unusual, until 
 
we start lurching and inching and 
all of a sudden stopping. 
 
I think, thank god for the seatbelt that’s 
holding me back, though it doesn’t do much with 
 
the ticklish feeling in my stomach 
that shoots straight up to my shoulders. 
 
I shiver and shake it off, involuntarily 
shuddering as angry honks harmonise.  
 
Hey, let’s make some noise for Christmas, right?
