sharing the fountain

the children lean over the fountain
their soft pink tongues protruding
       
        the smaller child can see the water
        and feel its cool spray
        but he's not tall enough to taste and fully drink
       
 eyelashes against skin
         body straining with stretch
                   he cries
       
all he needs is a boost
so he doesn't have to keep on trying
