Big things happen in a Moment.
When we were thirteen years old, my twin brother used his paper route savings and bought us tickets on Frontier Airlines for our very first flight to Minot, ND, to visit our oldest brother.
On that take off, in that Moment, something altered in
my cells, my self. It moved me then:
turning onto the runway
an anticipatory pause
engines’ humming, turning
looking down, the pavement blurs
the body lifts
looking up, gravity is defied
: It moves me still.
After university, I work as a flight attendant
and find true bliss at 35,000 feet altitude oh that man, that Moment
we soar into
twenty-five years of Sir surreal love
another Moment, He dies.
What to do? What to think? How to live?
I defy…keep on the fly…
a Human being? no, a Travel being .
Some wonder if
I’m running away.
I like to think I’m running toward…
