a boy rides a wheelie
out of sight

That 'out of sight' really makes the haiku.
I've become a bit of a sucker for alliteration, so opening line and last line works running alongside that middle line.
down side streets –
gulls turning the sky
in and out

Thank you, Alan! And, I owe an apology to tinywords, as I have just realized I submitted this haiku to two places (who both chose to publish it). It was unintentional, and I apologize for my sloppy oversight.
Thanks Mark, and to Dylan, for rescuing my comment I posted several days ago.
I doubt there are many people who haven't innocently double submitted! :-)
Great to see it here, as well as at Frogpond, congratulations, and glad Dylan and his wonderful team of editors took it!
