  7. 7. The Final Deployment By Anna Prokos Selena strapped on her sneakers and ran to the airport like a race horse sprints to the finish line. She trotted past traffic and trees, Zipped over curbs and cracks And soon reached her final destination Where a thousand of her closest friends waited. And turned their owl eyes in her direction She took a gasp so loud it was heard on three other continents. Selena spotted her brother Thin, clean-shaven, and a fit fiddle The siblings stared straight at each other And ran to give hugs that had waited Too long to be given.
