He rushed home from school

to see a television show,

but he missed the show

of birds in some maple trees

on Locust Street,

and the performance of a few men

making conversation by the coffee shop.

He missed the miracle

of two boys on skateboards

skimming the sidewalk by CVS,

and the sensational lifting and falling

of tree limbs in the park.

The television show was good, though –

a movie made in some distant,

striking location.
