Residual Breeze from a Passing 747

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

The alley stank of overflowing god knows what

I was in a hurry to do absolutely nothing fast

Sometimes you just get that urge to do something

Anything

Anywhere

Anyhow

with anyone who may stumble into your path

I paused to peer up at Orion's belt in the sky

I'm not sure why, it's not like I'm a fan of his

As I gazed, a low-flying 747 blared overhead

It took almost a full minute, but soon I was

feeling instantly alive

with the residual breeze as if a dragon batted

its immense wings

against my wandering frame, causing stillness

The gust of air played like a cherished melody

upon my clothes, face, and hair in the night

I wanted that plane to turn around

I wanted that plane to land in the alley

I wanted that plane to scoop me up, up, and away

I wanted that plane to be the des ex machina that

can save any shiftless third act life from all the

weak willed choices, hair-pin turns, plot holes,  

and directionless late night alley roaming

that haunt this tortured scribbler

I wanted that plane to bring me to you

But you missed the plane entirely

because you're afraid to let go

of whatever is attached to

childhood's lost kite

Apologies, everyone. I'm going to repost this. The formatting is way off.

Okay. Hopefully the poem makes more sense now and won't cause a hemmorage when attempting to read it...
