By
I live a life of rental cars,
hotel rooms, black suits
and plane tickets. If you asked
what’s in my suitcase, I would
be able to tell you in
less than a minute:
three matching suits and
four corresponding white shirts.
One pair of black shoes –
identical to the ones I’m already wearing.
If you asked about my family,
I wouldn’t have any pictures to
show you – rather, I would tell you
to fly with me. My family is
in the sky. My comfort food,
a “home-cooked meal” comes in a
reheated package, a perfect portion.
A breath of fresh air: it’s recycled.
I’m home,
Please fasten your seatbelt
I sit down: it’s nice to meet you.
