Dear readers. Below you will find two poems. These poems give voice to the practice of security work in a Dutch airport. Writing poems is for us a process of engaging with the research data in an affective way, a process of writing together-apart (Barad, 2014), and a process that sparks joy and creativity. We see the contributions of this paper as twofold: (1) with these poems we feel that we can better capture the material agencies that constitute organizational life, and (2) we hope to spark an affective engagement from you when reading these poems on the doings of airport security work.
