Pre-flight drinks


 

Pre-flight drinks

 

East Midlands Airport:the bar

where I’m not sitting.

 

I’m on a black vinyl sofa

in front of a booth, http://www.discovereastmidlands.com.

 

Sometimes the bottles at the back of the bar

glow purple under fuschia and violet spots.

 

Enticing elixirs. Next moment

they’re coming up in blues.

 

It would be a case of smash and grab, I think:

seizing, unstopping, drinking

 

before someone zealous pulled the switch

that drained the magical away from the realism.
