If Karen Black was a Marmoset

If Karen Black was a marmoset

she would make me put my tray table up before take off

she would chatter in an inflatable life vest

she would eat all the peanuts

she would run out of ice before I had a chance

to have a coke

she would help me put my luggage in the overhead bin

while Zuni warriors carve their way through suitcases

in the belly of planes

as they flew over places where children played

marmoset Black would tell us

of baggage carousels and connecting flights

as we touched down

with trays locked in an upright position
