“The Pinnacle”

by Jade Nicole Beals

There was a plea from you to forget the scales as the music fell 
from all around you, and little cue notes drifted 
into my sleep, like windows in my dreams looking out, 
and you
  smiling through you
as you know you are the dream 
come true, the scales returning
to the music and world, falling into place
by word and touch. I’ve seen you 
wandering along
 the dazzling staircase, whichever
 step you pick 
to look out 
  matters not, as you know 
that the look back you’d want 
you would know in a second or less.
