Wind sock kites can be seen along the beach
Couldn’t afford one; always out of reach
Until that Wednesday
When one got away
“Please, Mom, let it be mine,” I did beseech
No other kids were in sight on the sand
I grabbed the string; the kite took off as planned
Seagull in the way
Tangled right away
Snarled in the jetty, I saw it crash land
