Clutching our tickets and passports
we pile into an Uber to the airport.
In the back of the plane we see our
Leonia neighbor, Stan Crain, who
was rumored to have passed away
after losing his wife. We wave to him,
but he doesn’t wave back. We assume
he must be stoned on the non-addictive
pain killer he developed while working
at the Einstein Medical School.
The Captain announces: United is offering
complimentary first class tickets to everyone.
We will be flying higher than ever before.
Champagne is on the house, so drink up,
and enjoy the flight into the wild blue yonder.
