Girl with Wings

Girl with Wings

I climb the stairs with what
always seems like thousands
of tourists wanting to see
that painted girl

They look for signs or ask
guards and they search,
only to stand in line
for a short glance.

I ascend the long wide staircase,
the girl with the wings waits
at the top, on the stone prow
of her ancient ship where
she has alighted to signify victory.

She greets me and I know where I am
