Hearing the Planes by Bob Small

Hearing the Planes
By Bob Small, August 16, 2021 
I thought maybe it was what a Blitz sounded like
in Iraq or London
so close . . .
not knowing
sleep had been split
and could not be mended
It felt next
like the start of a Doctor Who episode
but, at the end of that,
you knew all would be right
at the end of that
the Alien Life forms
would be gone, gone, gone
Finally we were awake enough to know
it was just a low flying plane
that would neither affect our property
or its value
only our peace and time
so I decided to put away
for now
my anti-aircraft words
