Close enough to see the gates open
Playing on the words of ‘close’ and ‘open’ Push infers a metaphorical gate. She is ‘close’, (aka near enough) to see them open but they could ‘close’ (aka shut), just as quickly. Nice use of a homonym.
This also ties in with the previous line refering to the gates of heaven.
