the age old problem



i said, "are you sure you don't want to fly that in a field?"


he said, "naw, it'll be ok."


his ever faithful mother is standing ready to retrieve
aircraft gone awry 


he goes up


he comes down empty handed


meanwhile, brother is launching


they discuss their options


the brothers came with two flying toys
and will leave with one


their saintly mother
smiles
knowing what matters
(a lesson for the grammy)
one aircraft snuggly lodged in the evergreen
but two boys
still smiling

waiting for dad or the wind
