ALL ABOARD


I step on the plane
           and turn my will
and my life
           over to the care
of the pilot

as I did five years ago
           on the theatre table
with a squad of
           surgeons sharpening
their blades.

Big moments of trust in life!

Moonlight shines off
           the starboard wing.

~

Coltrane plays
            in the clouds
adding to
            the turbulence
plane flying
            straight through
cloud white fleece -
            clashing cymbals ...

I edit on
           a Qantas napkin
