Crackling For A Piece Of The Moon

“Look!” Yoji came back to the house with a goldfish in a plastic bag.
“Wait! We have to count 10,” said Aljure.
“Ten, nine, eight, seven, ………….
“Aljure released the goldfish to a jar.
“Are they hollow blocks?” he asked.
“Yes, with eyes” I said.
It’s alive.

Sound of running flip flop on kids’ feet.
“Yoji!” Jamjam and JM called from the street.
Then all of them dashed
to the little door next to the pasit shop
and disappeared into the dark.
On the roof, I saw a white dove.
