TIN TUBE

I’m in a tin tube. Inside a sun spot. 

Above the mountains high.

The burn of water. The fist of white noise.

The shake and throttling.

 

I’m in a tin tube. There’s no controlling.

Take what they’re giving me.

I’ve got my big books. They will distract me from thoughts of falling down.

 

I’m in a tin tube. Breathe through the same lung.

That’s me inside your mouth.

And every small field looks like a country.

Another question mark.

 

I’m in a tin tube. The heads are smiling.

As wine and bread moves by.

 

I’m in a tin tube. You’re in a building.

You check your watch again.

And up above you my ears are popping.

I hear the landing gear...
