Poem Introduction

A poem written while flying to San Francisco.

 


 

Ode TAUrban Airport 

Cola comes in cans
With smooth flexing
Aluminum sides

Less flexible aluminum
Cans with rows of seats
Provide us transportation

We sit in those gaudy tubes
With smooth flexing
Aluminum wings

As vibrations shimmy
Us about the sky
To our destinations

Watching aluminum wings
Disassemble in whining pangs
Wafted about on landing

Gaudy tubes on wheeled wings
Wait in lines to rumble forth
Or hang as inbound lines of lights

Flights on final landing
Follow lumbering liftoffs
Growling in their wake

They come, they go
And in between
They clean out the cola cans
