Guest Worker from Kerala on the Way to the World

Tomas Unger

By Jason Henry

The man complaining over the late flight is finally silent. His voice has gone hoarse: acceptance, acceptance. The attendant can only smile at the sudden quiet a little sadly. A child has made a blanket of his father’s overcoat. And the father, where— he’s up by the wall of glass, his face pressed against it, his tie loosened. On the runways, the men in lit vests drop the sticks of light at their sides saying what was to come, it already has.
