Taking Fun Where You Can

Children use pieces of plastic debris to slide down the roof of a building destroyed by an airstrike in Qayara, south of Mosul

A reprieve

amid the horror

of bombs dropping,

mortar shells exploding,

the whine of jets overhead

 

Boys slide down a roof,

their plastic mats

slip with the slope,

air rushes past

the thrill of speed

and risk born of fun
