We’re all in Departures:

Within those ticking-brief moments of rest time.

Our minds in transit. We load up

on caffeine or booze for the long haul.

To steady the nerves.


Some sitting alone, lamenting farewells.

Others tingling with anticipation

at what’s to come.

Either clutching the onward ticket, or

stowing it deep. Unhappy at the destination.


Each absorbed.

Staring at the screens.

Waiting to be told

where to go.
