Bookstore Poems #327 and #329. Kites, Pts. 1 and 2

A two-fer, because I thought of the second one after I’d written another poem.

My favorite
is the lemonade kite

It’s tricky to fly
but instead of getting tangled
in trees or wires
it showers lemonade
all through the park

I was going to say
the milkshake kite
but that would get too sticky, I think

And then
there’s the question of flavor

Lemonade is a much safer bet
