Some of us are here to watch, most
of us are here to watch for what to
watch. We have camped out on
the cracked saline earth in a row
along the line they set for us.
Comfort stations are available
on the horizon. It will be history.
There is a lot of waiting. There is time
to polish the shell of the Airstream,
the Winnebago, the Cherokee.
Look at all the empty folding chairs.
Too hot to sit still, not knowing
when it will happen. We have brought
coolers and drinks, we are prepared.
We have plenty of beer, and we
expect the landing to be memorable.
If everything goes as expected,
it should happen soon.
