“Please Remain Seated” – Matthew Mogavero

The plane took off,

and then did the woman

from her seat

through the ceiling

and then from the roof of

the aircraft she continued

launching higher through

the ether, eyes and mouth

wide, all screaming the same


Tomato juice


pretzels, please

I guess.
