A Mind In The Sky

Shot by Brad Williams in Astoria Queens. 7/14/2013

I finally greet takeoff

The wait has been long enough

As my weight is taken outside of nature’s pattern

And flippantly made lesser or greater

The faces worn by those around me

                                                   Range from stoic to panicked

The Woman beside me

Flinches dramatically during our ascension

Her pearlescent teeth clenched and eyes focused

On something only she can see

And while I know that

There are far more profound thoughts

To be had at 36,000 above

A single phrase has annexed my mind

‘Clouds really do look like cotton’
