For The Pelican At Carlsbad Beach

The pelican breezes
along the expressway
of the the wind, looking
down on all of us,
and thinks to himself:

"If only I had hands,
I could build a castle in the air
with many stairs.”

Then wheeling to the right
and looking down at us
again, he thinks:

“If I had proper legs,
I could climb to the top
of the castle's bell tower and look out
for hours at my kingdom
of clouds."
