Risky Flight

The images are all scenes from out of a plane window, first a city,

I’m sitting in the plain,
my colors rinsed
down drain;
a sterilized domain.
He said I was a plane
girl,
always jetting off
to the next guy.
Maybe it was
true, I did
look for the exit
sign whenever
I took a seat by
someone new.
Heads more abstract
when viewed
from the back.

It’s always the
window view for me.
Head banging
against the pain,
mid-flight.
The damage,
a pillow-less overnight.
I did not stop
the take-off,
my baggage
check,
customs long
passed.
I grind my teeth
in turbulence,
flapping myself towards
you.
To stop the
pane rattling,
jostling my
frame on this
risky flight.
