I am an oversized carry-on.
Battling to fit in the overhead compartment.
To cut out something from my carry-on,
would just transfer it to my checked luggage-
no longer in sight but still a misfortune.
And I wouldn't close properly because there would be no zipper.
I am being crammed into the small overhead compartment,
twisting and shoving, turning with no luck.
The passengers are statues- staring with no emotion.
Looking in different directions, inconvenienced by me
struggling to fit in a 9 x 14 x 22 space.
