In short

  • The fleeting fame with power rose

    and set, along with the many invoking moons.

    I languished in the paradise of the Hawaiian Islands for almost

    a quarter of a century. I claim to have shivered my way through

    twelve years of "Pushing Tin." Tantimount to tropical sweat.

    Often I sat trembling, with a whimpering

    snot bubble in my nose.

    I reflect back on this inflaming Radio Air Traffic

    experience with lament.

    With claims to have never caused contact between tons of metal

    and precious souls on board.

    However mangled I thawed "cold turkey"off the power of it all.

    What now remains are quite moments,

    etched in flashing memory.

    Was I just a blue collar commander of gliding monstrous metal?

    People often ask me, "Don't you miss Hawaii?"

    As time passes, not as much. Yet a smell of

    tropical ginger still glistens

    through my nostrils, as do wonderful blinding

    reflections of the glimmering blue salty ocean

    of Hawaiian heaven.
