Title: Areal Footprints

A fretful foot-fall of multi-tempered travellers
steers mind and luggage along the walk-way
to Terminal Five.
Environmental footprints, yearnings
soon levitate in shining canisters
soaring to distant climes.
Belted in their sky-high pod,
awaiting luncheon trays'
drinks trolleys,
they sample duty-free delights
before descending
into someone-else's world.

Has our world been damaged
by their footprints
abrading air-waves,
shuddering the sky.

I wonder.
