Dreams on an Airplane

Pressure, Gravity, Acceleration
pushed deep into a cheap seat

Awareness, Fear, Acceptance
skimming through streets
bystanders scattering for cover

A Death Plane, Eyes Closed, Fait Accompli
walking through a well dressed funeral
a crowded side walk with sports memorabilia
seats reclining
punch line from a chapter

A Bombing Run, Machines Embracing, A Past Future


splash of reality

return to equilibrium

but the haunting
the memories of absurdity
destined to linger
real in moments past

dreams on an airplane
unrestful ghosts of travel
recalling sleep to fill time
and occupying thoughts far beyond.
