Summary

Here's a little thing I wrote for an essay contest for creative writing last year. I thought it was lousy at the time, but it got published, somehow, so I must give it a little respect. I haven't changed any words, but I did switch two lines up a bit, just for the record.

We approach the counter;
expansive colors and flavors,
but we know what we want.
Red, blue and yellow; it tastes like vanilla,
but the colors, like touches of sunshine, just make it better.

We begin our trek back down the sand
toward the crashing waves;
squawking and screaming, diving and swooping,
from above, they invade.

Mine falls in agony,
and hers bleeds down her arm like syrup,
dripping off her elbow.

No escape.
We run the short distance back up the sand,
though it feels like miles.

Our treasures were lost long ago
and the thieves were satisfied.
