land ho

oh short-pile carpet of Newark airport
oh centrifugal force of the baggage claim
oh miasmic humidity of New Jersey
oh sleepy faces, bedhead, dishevelment
oh unalien city
oh airplane chicken teriyaki
oh immigration pledge to courtesy
to full disclosure
to tedium and dignity

I can't remember the last time I saw such an effective use of the poetic "oh" (or should it be "O"?).

good question. maybe it's the poetic O concealing itself as contraband in a regular oh.
