THE TECHNOCRAT

 

Undercarriage.
The very word conjures technical delight:
Its reliability
Fundamental to each flight.
It forms the airplane’s only link
With earth.
Its smoothly hinged, hydraulic ease
A prelude to each landing,
Wheel-squealing, black puffs of rubber
Marking contact.

Undercarriage.
Once down, it swarms with life.
A clucking brood of technocrats
Relentless
In their checks and counter-checks.
Probing, ceaseless,
They crouch beneath the fuselage
Like chicks beneath the mother bird,
Cooled by her shadow
While they work.
