Flight Risk

The security line is long—you look fragile
in your black coat, a little pale, resolute
to not cry though we find we might
miss each other after all

At home, you’ve left the usual disaster
so your room is only a bit less jumbled
than yesterday—the cat, clueless
sleeps in the center of your bed
