Missed Opportunity

pot-of-gold

Tic-tac-toe
marks in squares
X’s and O’s

Games mothers play
on long car trips
when kids keep asking
“Are we there yet?”

I grew so bored with this game
so started telling
stories instead.
Heroes and heroines
with the names
of our children
kept the occupied
for long periods of time.

I could have filled
Harry Potter’s books
if only I’d thought
to write them down.
