Miles

Miles and Miles of:

Excitement for the destination

White clouds covering Earth

The back of the seat in front of you

Turbulence slanting the plane like a saucepan

Miles and Miles of:

Snoring people next to you

Watching those white clouds

Wishing you were on the ground already

Miles and Miles of:

Wondering who is looking up at the clouds

While you are looking down on them

And if you are above land or water

And what land or water exactly are you above

And how many more minutes

Until there are no more miles?
