missing a flight

September 3, 2011

I missed mushing yr hand on the runway

I missed digging out a valium

From the pocket-watch pocket of my black jeans

For you

My travel companion

All these trips      All this trip

We’ve walked on near paths

You’re absolutely absent

I’m a little off

On my own

& miss yr hand during an unsure landing

    Just beautiful.
    Tears to my eyes…

  2. I don’t hate to fly, but I get terrible anxiety once on board…this was a lovely piece.
