Custom

I came across this poem right after a recent trip with a number of immigration stopovers. I couldn’t help but smile. It was also nice finding out about Rae Armantrout who won the Pulitzer Prize early this year.

 

Custom
by Rae Armantrout

We maintain a critical distance
from the sad spaniel gentlemen

in cravats
on the plaid duvet

at the Custom Hotel,
Los Angeles.

We are so over it.
We fly

from terminal
to terminal

almost endlessly.

We are almost
money.

We can wait
at high speed.
