Leaving

Another plane takes off.
Jeffrey’s ready to go.  He looks the part.  With his suitcase standing next to him, in a tweedy jacket, with a scarf around his neck, a small carry-on bag and a camera.  The sky behind us, through the massive windows, has gone a peachy, saccharine colour.  It reminds me of pink lip gloss, and sunlight through a glass of brandy.  Low clouds add a feathery texture.
I don’t want him to leave.
