Favored Flare

Kure Beach, December 2022

Today, the suns not budging.

She rubs her Buddha belly

and makes foolish wishes,

glimmering till mid-morning,


Until the mascaron mist parts,

and she slingshots,

a pebble skipped towards shore,

kissing fire into the waves

which start to roar,

furious to be separated

from the good luck orb

they so adore.
