on the flight back,
gravity grounds me from my ascendance.
before my flight,
where the line blurred,
I crossed the boundaries –
one shoe in reality,
mind body soul in another world.
but, on the flight back,
with cramped legs and a flimsy blanket
looking out the small window
at the brown and green blending
and crisscrossing in sharp retorts,
I slip my shoes back on,
make polite small talk to attendants,
and stare blankly at the screen in front.
and, as the flight lands,
I walk back out.
A/N: aka me after winter break. Only one post today because I have finals for the next three days! So psyched…
