The journey before take-off

You don’t simply board a plane.

You walk
ride a subway
escalator
elevator
airport shuttle train
more elevators, escalators,

go down hallways.
More elevators, escalators ,
stairs
walkways
to the line to get on the plane.

You walk into a tube and wait.
You find your seat
you wonder if this flight is still a good idea at this point.

Hours later, you land.
It’s a miracle.
