Someone I Used to Know

from Installation by Nathan Mathes



I think I just saw someone I used to know
Heading toward the gate of a westbound plane.

Call out to my father. We do not connect.
I talk with my sister about the accident.

Liquids in a little bag. Belly of a silver beast.
Outside the world is blue and gray.
I swore that I would never fly this way again.
Are we all aching widowers or on our way to becoming them?

Double-mask and cover our eyes.
Damn the cold, invading light. Damn the calm before the rise.
Getting close. Terrible thread that pulls you in.
Talk of love's surprising grip.
Desperate times we share, I guess
