Ode to the drainage ditch

Bright rode down the sidewalk
training wheels loudly crunching
over little rocks
wearing his Lightning McQueen cap
to shade his little nose.
I watched proudly from inside the window
when I realized I never taught him
how to stop
and he was headed for the end of the sidewalk
which drops off into a drainage ditch
filled with muck water...

I snapped this picture moments later.
