a solitary confinement…

solitary-confinement2

this small space
at
twenty thousand feet
is filled
with engine moans
and
random colliding conversations
conversations
punctuated
by
a child’s cry
expressing
no doubt
disapproval
for
the level of
parental service
time seems
suspended
clock hands
refuse
to move
forward
