Snatched Play

Palestinian children play marbles in a street in Gaza City 

Photographer: Mohammed Abed

On sandy soil,

with a background of battered buildings,

boys meet to play

 

Marbles are flicked by thumbs

others’ are ricocheted off course

on the way to the prize hole

 

Glass orbs,

roll in snatched moments

of fun
