Unknown
Ouraltitude increases,
air swoops around fans,
like water boiling
in hugepots and pans.

Cacophonous vibrations tear up my ears;
wings flap upwith a swoosh,
each noise brings new fears.

A bright blueuniform,
won't let my eyes close.
A steward offers me headphones;
it'shis permanent pose.

Bad thoughts flash through my head.
My sistersleeps and drools,
those who can rest
are lucky, fools.

Agrandfatherly gentleman
Plays peekaboo
with a toddler who does notknow
what terrorists do.
