playing jacks on a sloped, granite slab
the eyes watching the jacks
bounce downward toward a cliff
the ball having preceded them
slow hands flipping
at the end of lazy arms
tiny suns sparkle from mica
uttered rainbows in childhood rhymes
the children fall through the air
far down to the bottom of this
following the game to its conclusion
children scattered like jacks
being picked up
by the handfulls
onesies twoies threesies
