Before Headphones

some scratches

Taxiing, the baby screeched in the background.
A woman next to him smacked,
Popped and pulled
Her gum, while he snored.
His daughter, embarrassed,
Shook him as they took off. The movement
Causing only his mouth to fall open
Wider and the sounds to become more nasal and the flight climbed higher as the cries grew louder.
