She takes off quietlyfrom New Guinea
She does not say goodbye,forgets the antenna by the runway.A little after departureshe tries the radio
Everything okayEverything is okay
and hours later, the messagewill howl in the watchtower.
She will be counting hoursthen miles; waiting foryesterday's sunrise.
