Stationary Static

With symmetry comes illusions
Like circular wheels
Turning so fast
You think they're standing still
And the road is just pulling itself up to keep the car going at the speed the dial tells it 
And the people behind them
Get caught up in the bunched up mess of the worlds spin
Like a bunched up rug the grip of your shoe can't grab
Or a wrinkled table cloth pulled quickly enough to leave dishes in place
Like that car
Standing still at 75 miles per hour along the road.
