The end of the very last day of school,
standing poised on the edge of the pool,
smell of curry as I'm opening the door,
excitement of Christmas on the night before,
next in line for the roller coaster,
when will the toast come out of the toaster?
jitters, dread, a lack of patience,
waiting and waiting...anticipation.
