Fait Accompli - Poem by RIC BASTASA

the plane took off
i realized i did not like the aisle seat
i transferred to the window seat
and the stewardess said
'excuse me, sir! ' trying to stop me
for doing so,
i pretended i heard no one
moved as fast a i can towards the window seat
fastened my seat belt
and put my head
well rested on the
beside the window

below the clouds flew
past me
on a deceiving speed
the mountains spread
benumbing
