AIRPORT HAIKU

Miami
I'm leaving on a jet plane
Unsure where it lands
"Miss, please be seated anyway."

Middle America
Fruit smoothie in Chicago
Should be in Dallas
Lost and aloft, I drift homeward

Seattle
Luggage late, hard shell slashed
Return for repair
Worth a half day on the bus?

Idle tongue
"Muslims ruined your suitcase."
I shrink away, appalled
Normal shell, bigoted core

  1. a quit holiday of fear..., in any way airplane (and sometimes the organization around it) take the skill of an antidiluvian monster, and you are the "victim". Do I try to call for Sherlock Holmes? :)

  2. Oh, I made it home OK. Just bleary.

    All part of the price of admission...
