flying high in the sky haiku

`
now cocktail hour
roasted peanuts and raisins
cessna flying by

low passenger plane
three windows in front of us
a minute later

plane turns around shore
flying a little higher
probably cocktails

mother and father
seagulls at same altitude
top of each other

way off to the side
probably not their baby
not close family

nesting in green palm
flapping wings at the same time
floating in the next

“party going on
right here a celebration”
through the hemisphere

traveling north bound
nonstop hundreds of birds fly
a lobster buffet

birds read the plane’s sign
they’re going out for dinner
what is to stop them

is your boyfriend crazier than larry david

in the tv land marathon of curb your enthusiasm, cheryl calls larry, from a plane she thinks may be crashing in a storm. larry says just a minute, the tivo guy is here. she , rightly so ,left him, running far away with the man in the next seat.

it was the year 1998, when the airport was called national. my boyfriend said why don’t you come to d.c. for a week. after a week, you are packing and he says why don’t you stay another week.then you spend the entire evening on hold changing your ticket.then, why don’t you stay another week. then why not 3 more days. why not one day. why not another week.. it always ended after 4-6 weeks, but you never knew that would be how it turned out. well you might, but i didn’t. twelve round trips…

so, one sunday there was a terrible storm,lightning, not quite hurricane hugo , when we arrived at the airport. i am afraid of planes in the sun,on the ground.there was no way i was going to get on the plane, but mr. mishuginah decided it was time to go. he didn’t want to take me home, so i said take me to a hotel. finally, he took me home.

well at least larry didn’t put cheryl on the plane in a storm.and he claims he didn’t hear why she was calling.

turbulant nightmares

caring only about self

lightning strikes above.

asking to play golf

because it was too long.
