Day 226 – Stale plane suffocation

Stale plane suffocation

We’re a mini-city sailing through
the sky housed in a rocket with
a community in its worst possible
state,

A suburb with niceties bubbling on
the front lawn and vicious tempers
just one broken sprinkler away

Today’s Neighborhood Watch
meeting is hosting debate on
whether the pilots or the children
are controlling the situation,

Seems like a tie and a waste of
time and I’m the most uncompassionate
version of me that I’ve seen in weeks

I feel sorry for no one, dislike just
about everyone, have my eye on her
laptop and his magazine and despise
the first ten rows,

But I don’t feel bad, everyone is
holding their breath next to each other,
pretending 5 1/2 hours at two inches
apart isn’t intimate enough to garner
a greeting

I’m getting two seconds closer to
a plan for a valium and being
quarantined with the kitties for
my next ride in this routine
