An Unnamed Airport

I hate you airport who will not be named
You have the worst layout
An experiment in alternative design
And brutalist architecture
Futurist ideas aged before their time

I hate you airport who will not be named
Offsite car rental
Obnoxious traffic
And people being housed like mistreated cattle
A lack of services does not endear you to the traveler

I hate you airport who will not be named
For the four hour wait in line
The overnight delay
The airfield like a lake
And for being too hot and humid inside

I hate you airport who will not be named
For all of the above
But also for reminding me of saying goodbye to a love
In the place that I told her how I felt
Like they do in the movies

I hate you airport who will not be named
An ugly place for beautiful memories
And feelings of loss
A turned head on the way through security
Being indiscreet after days of discretion

I hate you airport who will not be named
For being unexpected
For the surprise and being caught off guard
For being different, and therefore memorable
For needing to make allowances for mind, body, and heart.
