The man is pleased
his smile--
getting bigger
two red balloons
in his hands.
the children so excited
for it has been too long
they've missed him so much
he's home.
looseining his grip
the balloons drift upward
higher and higher and higher they go.
invisible air drifts
inside them
longing to get out
so jealous it has become.
what a boring life its lived
locked up and alone
its gone
nothing lasts forever.
