Two hour lines.
Too many probing stares.
Multiple media scares.
Can we frisk, profile and search
our way out of this?
Can we make these skies friendly again?
Turbulence of repeating media images of
exploding planes and
imploding rubble

anxious air in our
adjusted seatbacks.
We are based here on
one- foot floatable cushions
between two lands, yet surrounded
by their common conveniences:
Headset jazz session on number five,
TV snippets and Hollywood blockbuster on number one,
Sharper Image gifts orderable on Airfone,
Pre-requested vegetarian food and our
choice of beverages neatly fit on
plastic stowaway trays.
This comfortable familiarity is slashed by
plastic knives; they were metal in August.
