sharks steal no swimming sign haiku

sharks knock off at six
everyone’s in the ocean
lifeguards have gone home

you’ll happen upon
two guys from Dirty Dancing
doing the lift scene

and i wasn’t wrong
second attempt is the charm
held for one second

both weigh more than me
two grown men in their thirties
not being funny

it’s all about kites
black remarkably large bird

he’s flying the kite
picks up his three year old son
kite in his right hand

other on his son
then he sits in the ocean
still flying the kite

stands with no problem
how long have we been looking
the wrong direction

a royal blue kite north
resembling an octopus
makes s’s and u’s

very fun to watch
green jellyfish tiny boy
next to each other

a fifteen foot tail
flying high above the beach
S’s next to me

nine thirty so dark
tiny piece of sun so dark
fire in the sky

no it was the moon
hidden behind a white cloud
and rising higher

myrtle beach distance
fireworks fill the night sky
several miles away

each time you look south
u hear a loud whoosh behind
spin like a dreidel

they’re so close to you
you judged the smoke direction
correctly my friend

fireworks above
ten sparklers , five cheerleaders
little boy Rockettes
