In Flight

The Captain looks like you, a spiral notebook man, loose blonde curls and self-tanner. He asks if anyone has questions and I ask back, “How much does a Vodka Collins cost?”

There’s turbulence rumbling thunder in my stomach, working its way to my throat. The clouds spell a name in Spanish. Through a crease of light I see Brazil and what our unborn child would have looked like.
