The Friendly Skies

breakfast is a bacon and egg skillet
cantaloupe and grapes
and two double scotches
airplanes are great like that
happy happy happy
greatest flight ever 
listened to the in-flight entertainment
seasons in the sun, like a rolling stone
don’t you forget about me
miles davis, thelonious monk
classical I don’t even know what it was
but it was relaxing
some more scotch why not?
8 hours and I don’t care
I could fly forever--plane or no plane
and now rain delays our touchdown
like 10 or 12 planes
flying next to us colorful rocket ships
zooming past us, over us, under us
airborne subway trains in the sky
kinda frightening
I hope they all know we’re up here
