herded onto the plane

sitting next to strangers

hoping that they will respect your privacy


a moment to reflect

that’s if you are flying without a toddler

sterilising all surfaces

that he will touch or suck

stopping him from kicking the seat in front

or standing up and staring at the passenger behind

or making a noise

on those rare occasions

when i travel alone

i look forward to some time to myself

this is why i don’t want to talk

maybe i will read a new book

maybe i will peruse the inflight magazine

maybe i will write

maybe i will nap
