Boy teaching girl to fly kite

Kite creates spirals in the sky

before nose-diving into dirt

boy demonstrates movements for girl

who sits observing the lines

he is drawing

space cradles them both

as much as they deserve

and they resist it as much as they can

him more than her

that makes him more efficient and recognizable

and her colder

when the wind blows harder

because to embrace the elements more

than resisting them

is to feel more of everything

and we are often unprepared

for who we turn out to embrace.
