Predicting iffy weather at both ends
of my short flight, I took those words to heart
at first. Complaining to my patient friends,
and strategizing how to not depart
right then, I amped myself impressively.
But tickets non-refundable have heft
and I was past due seeing family –
I locked the door and squared my frame and left.

I traveled, and to make the story short,
I’ll state the trip was seamless in a word.
Full perfect is the factual report,
and even if it weren’t, it occurred
to me I’m just as able out my door,
and I won’t squander worry any more.
