Boarding Time

There is a layer of calm
perhaps even apathy.
We are calmly apathetic
while waiting for
flight number five seven nine.

Our seasoned stillness is
a measured protection
against the unbridled excitement
with no release save for
a trip to the washroom.

The myriad people are
multicoloured threads
and the hushed
conversations a pattern
weaving fabric out of circumstance.

This temporary
blanket is cozy
and we enjoy shared use
but for a moment before
the atomic nature of
it brings us to our feet.
