At The San Francisco Airport

Rating: 3.2
This is the terminal: the light
Gives perfect vision, false and hard;
The metal glitters, deep and bright/
Great planes are waiting in the yard-
They are already in the night.

And you are here beside me, small.
Containted and fragile, and intent
On things that I but half recall-
Yet going whither you are bent.
I am the past, and that is all.

This is a fine poem. The perception in the 5th stanza is reptilian and appalling.

This is elegant and touching poetry. A turning point of no return. A broken heart. The light does not give perfect vision.
