The poem is supposed to be inspired by Carole King's song called "I Feel The Earth Move." Carol's situation in her song is upbeat, from being in love, we are to think of being let down.
It's been a long time since I've been literally let down so I was prompted to write of my world literally shaking from a very loud car stereo on an overpass which shook from the busy traffic speeding along below. The bridge shakes from below, the car mirrors keep the music beat when the radio is played full blast. My human reaction was of the fellow in the car behind who didn't particularly care for my loud music playing.
