Little kids on the beach are the saints
of nature. You were once one of them,
remember? worship was part of our
daily routine; praying in pits of sand;
the water sucking up around us, then
returning home. Miracles were performed
daily, because, didn’t we erect buildings
from nothing? churches from sand?
& what else is flying a kite? It was either
religion or magic. Looking back, I still can’t decide which.
