Look!

She pointed to the night sky,
And she gasped,
Look!
Look at all those stars –
That MOON –
Look at how big it is –
It’s like –
It’s like going to the IMAX –
No – the OMNIMAX!
Isn’t it awesome?

And I tripped on the sidewalk
And I laughed
And I put her on my shoulders.

I pointed to the night sky,
And I said,
Look!
If you had every movie screen –
Every OMNIMAX –
Every theater in the entire world –
You still couldn’t fill
all the space
In the sky.
Isn’t that awesome?

And she tilted her head back
And she looked.
