Tegel's Last Sigh


the air in airport gives up a

sigh as the last departure …



Tegel’s Last Sigh expels the

air out of the airport, from its

movement around the building

to the wooof of the radar

boom, the psssh of the closing

doors, the flapping of the wind

sock, the blast of the hand

driers, and the roar of the last

jet engine to blow windy eddies

over the deserted tarmac

apron: the last breath of Tegel Airport. 

But remember ‘If oxygen is

required, masks will appear

from panels above you.’
