No brand, no partnership. Not promoted, no comment, no NFT. Didn’t get a permit, didn’t ask permission, not on a mission. Not an ambassador, nothing to subscribe to, donate to, admit to. I’m not especially proud, nobody overcame a hardship, there was no journey, there’s no narrative, no credits, no points. Stumbled in and wrote a verse on a used typewriter by the Cecil Hotel. Above, a plane turned East, settling in for a long flight. Leaving, returning… only used thoughts.

In truth, we are all only flying.
