during lunch

in old sac

a mother & her two children walked in to the restaurant

a little boy & a little girl

both were wearing tiaras

on their heads

later the tiara was on the girl's waist

the boy was playing with a toy military warbird

the girl's t-shirt said PACIFIST

this kind of vignette
works great in a collection
of different ones

i like the truncation on the scene
true to true, zero editorials

'children' seems a little off the
tone of the rest... 'kids'?

kids might work better, yes. this poem was written rather quickly directly on the blog. i consider this sort of writing one-offs. sometimes a poem gets written. oftentimes an approach toward poetry is the result. still, writing these one-offs can sweep out the cobwebs and opens the windows to let in fresh air.
