SJC -> TUL

Clouds pool in the valley below,
sweet cream in a bowl of stone.
From here, along this axis,
the world is black and white,
choices reduced to seat pocket
and carry on.

I love the simplicity of air travel
the tabla rasa of terminals
ETAs and ETDs
flexible by definition.

I need not think about the land-
ing
with its host of unknowns,
nor anticipate the mixed bag of emotion
peculiar to family.

Here, I am a soul on board,
no more
no less.
