on planes, in your arms

last five.

wheels down, safely still
or frozen, what happens next?
smoke a cigarette

replay the stories
of what never should happen
on planes, in your arms

she wonders: why us
she thinks: it's not all that bad
she sits: her breaths climb

she climbs: breathes faster
she pretends: touch me once more
she hopes: forgiveness

ask: does this feel good?
it's the hardest fucking thing
to do what is right.
