Closer to the stars

The loudspeaker squawked for a fraction of a second.
His attention was brought back to the embarkation gate.

In just a little while, he would find himself above where he had been below, among the clouds,
looking at the world while it slipped slowly under the wings of that fascinating metal “beast.”
And he would be closer to the stars…
