Bucket

Listening to people talk about something
they’re passionate about is magical.
It’s a ski-slope into a new world.
It can transform a colleague
into a master calligrapher,
a toddler into a T-Rex,
a marketeer into the Intercontinental Champion,
a sibling into an astronaut.
I wish, for one second, I could feel
what you feel when you eat chocolate.
I’d change my name to Charlie Bucket.
