Travelling Together

Traveling together
Means 
Early wake-ups
In different cities
In opposite climates
Of 
Africa
Traveling together 
Means
Different airports
Altered time zones and
Biorhythms 
Of
Being 
Traveling together
Means
Anxious check-ins
Revised itineraries 
With separate seating
On
Random airlines
Traveling together
Means
Familiar lounges
Separate experiences
(Mostly) predictable procedures
In
Different airports
Traveling together
Means
Scrambled schedules
Impromptu rearrangement
Flexible emotions
And
Optimistic boarding
Traveling together
Means
Midnight meet-ups
Single glasses 
Of airborne wine
And
Out-of-time reunions
Traveling together
United 
In our destination
Separately in sync
We board
Our
Different planes
