#2,623 Frequent Fliers

Airport terminals are slow
[of kissing gates
& x-ray arches] –
they steer
mugs into their ‘executive
lounges’ –
faces pass lives ‘til time to
line-up –
as tensile barrier-tunnelling
abounds for all
of us
[we passengers align
to strict rulings pre-flight] –
Duty Free is our too-lucent
distraction –
a foreign land
airside of costly fragrances
& sweated designer labels
will tempt holiday monies
before any soul has lift-off
