Full Flight Today

For an hour
with the company of only a few
only the airline staff
Quiet, peace, solitude
In only a few moments
the energy changes
now bustling with people
low hum of conversation
rolling suitcases
squeaky shoes
rustling paper
the zip of the zipper
crackling of a plastic bag
tears from a little one
who wants his water
and doesn’t have the words
every other person
staring at the phone
some at a computer screen
taking in the last email
last text
or last bit of Facebook
before hitting the off button
before cutting themselves off
from technology
and the rest of the world
… it’s a full flight today
