Cushion

On the subject of cushions,

I remember,

1985

On El Al flight to Israel,

My mum asking the purser if I could see the cockpit.

 

I was allowed up-front,

Yes.

El Al jet,

and I was allowed-in.

 

And the captain,

Handsome,

Tanned,

Completing a crossword

In English.

 

How do you spell cushion?

He asked.

and,

I wasn’t sure.

Cockpit
