Behind the Glass

there’s something there
just behind the glass
primping and preening
laughing and grinning
alight with mischief
a gleam in its eye
it beckons you forward
you take a step back
not today, not ever
you say every time
but again and again
it beckons you in
and it dances and laughs
blurry and distant
but every day it gets clearer
and one day you know
it’ll beckon you forward
and you
will
go
