In the United terminal in Chicago at five on a Friday afternoon

(poetry diary  234-4/12/17) Hard to read this poem right now w/out expecting a line about one of the passengers being dragged off of a plane….

Everybody Has a Heartache: A Blues
In the United terminal in Chicago at five on a Friday afternoon
The sky is breaking with rain and wind and all the flights
Are delayed forever. We will never get to where we are going
And there’s no way back to where we’ve been.
The sun and the moon have disappeared to an island far from 
anywhere.
