A powerplant’s song drops a tone, 
overhead I spot the single engine plane -
for a moment I feel my palm, last three fingers 
and thumb wrapped around the throttle knob
index finger pointing along the shaft
finger tip braced against the panel
to calibrate the adjustment,
easing the power out just a tad,
the vibration of engine and prop
all around and through me.
