Eleven-Hour-Zone-Difference Jet Lag
by Marlene Brubacher
“But in general, take my advice, when you meet anything that is going to be Human and isn’t yet, or used to be Human once and isn’t now, or ought to be Human and isn’t, you keep your eyes on it and feel for your hatchet.” —C.S. Lewis, The Chronicles of Narnia
I think I was human before those flights,
I hope to be human again,
But in these intervening days,
Have mercy, oh fellow men.
Marlene R. Brubacher rescues abandoned books, defends the Oxford comma, and grows poems.
