once he fell down in the doorway
i could no longer sift through all the flour in my vessels
all my senses assaulted me

i ate half-melted chocolate ice cream at the terminal
and folded every piece of clothing we owned
to wade through the remaining six hours

i lusted for our plane to arrive at the gate sooner
like a lover coming to sweep me under the sea

and one small voice from the pilot
fading as we left the ground said
(I remember, this was an important moment)
“one moment of peace before the chaos,”
