Cross Country

Sandra Marchetti

Cross Country photo

At 15,000 feet
and climbing,
I look down
from Seat 7A

into a suburban
swimming pool
and feel my
glasses splash.

Whenever I
fly I search
for the baseball
diamonds.

There are so many
in the Midwest
and you can
always spot them—

how the dust plumes,
how green the grass,
how there is so much
good land for them.
