Waiting Room # 1

excited flyers

first timers       businessmen    missionaries
waiting for     adventures        three hours of boredom           going home
the room fills up slowly
passengers gather
killing time looking out the windows   planes on the runway
beyond the planes and their tenders
the jungle flourishes
surrounding     the  concrete  and   the   asphalt
an authentic  war is taking place
the airport hacking          machetes swinging cutting back  
in the night  vines  creeping back        giant palms inching closer
the jungle will win in the end             it is only taking back
vines will eat the runway  
trees will crush the concrete
the birds will come back first
excited            like first time flyers   

they are already gathering       in the  bushes
