Airplane Poem #2

Note; While Working on other Projects,

I came across this on a photo CD.

I wonder what flight I was on

and why I didn’t just listen to Jefferson Airplane



Airplane Poem #2


The woman to her right

The woman to her right
Should of complained
About her having HER SEAT OUT
IF a man had done this
Hey buddy could have escalated elevated


But the woman to her right
Did not complain
Was restrained
I felt strained
Said and did nothing

Silently, I thought
There is nothing
That will ever require me to
Be around this person again
I ate my anger
While you are flying


While you are flying
You are

Listening to the
Classical station(s)
Dixie Chicks
The Cure

While you cannot see out of the window
By choice, by voice
You do not have to consider
That you are not in a very big hotel room

Naomi Judd
Andy Garcia
MC 5?
Something that ran five minutes too long


I am flying
The silence
Is only in my head— Robert Small wrote:
