To the northeast, seven parallel contrails spread and merge. An eighth appears through the treetops across the yard, and I have to sneeze.


  1. psychosomatic, or should we worry? I’ve been seeing more and more contrails these past few weeks.

    Nice writing, thanks for sharing.

  2. Ha! Yes, psychosomatic at best — I don’t buy into “chemtrail” conspiracy theories. The only thing contrails contribute to are cloud cover (an alarming amount of it, actually, here in the crowded northeast) and global climate change.

    Thanks for commenting.
