Flyway

My attic cabin
almost interferes with the
flight pattern of jets

departing T. F.
Green International Air-
port. They fly over

regularly, roar
in the day, roar and lights at
night. Hyperbole!

Good beyond good and
evil! Between flights oce-
anic peace out there.

  1. Tom,

    I get the flights over here too, but it’s mostly in the autumn. I think you’ll find that changes soon. One night years ago, early in my teaching life, I called the governor’s office at 2 a.m. as I had to get up and teach the following morning. I made a big stink over that.
