Regional jets

March 16, 2010

We are the regional jets lined up at the small airport. We taxi on short runways and lift off into questionable weather. We take glimpses East across the country on the approach to Western destinations, and we bear the buffeting of turbulence harder than the other planes. We land over circles and squares and spindly trees. We see you from up here. We want to get home just as badly as you do.
