Children At Play By Fairness Peck

Children At Play

children shouting
in circles
shoulder to shoulder
doing their best
of fence posts
knot hole elbows

children fighting
in the school yard
standing still
during the climax
as if it renders them

yet while i walk
past the playground
for a daily cigarette
i can tell
their hearts
in it
at all
