Redeye

My eyes are indeed red.

I haven’t looked in a mirror yet

But I can feel it.


This flight has been 

Quite pleasant.

Didn’t sleep at all

But rested my eyes.


Sidled up to my wife.  

The cough that has been

Robbing my nights of sleep

Held mostly at bay

By medication.


Over the Atlantic still

So blue out the window

The sun is just appearing.

Puffs of clouds greeting her.


Such busyness

To get to this flight

Hard to believe

We were actually going.
