When the Magic Ends (Day 282)

When the magic 
ends
and the music 
winds down, find 
the one who’s still 
around,
helping you sweep up 
the fairy dust
and 
carrying dishes
to the sink. 
Choose him. 
You may not think 
so now, but he 
is the answer 
to those prayers 
and wishes—
the one 
who stays
after the party,
instead of leaving 
you
to clean up 
the mess
while he follows 
the rest of the crowd.
