NEARLY THERE

The best of all is right before.
Almost, anyway.
I try to be the first, the one to see a sign:
“Look, there! Look, left!”
And the tallest bits of magic meet our eyes.
Mine squint, full of tears.
Shots of pink – I remember the smell – and
A rocket that could take me to space, a
Tower I’m never quite brave enough to climb.
But maybe this time.
