balloon

you precious amalgamation
precariously knit
shreds of skin and bone
you hum with life
shot-through with veins of red and blue
how vibrant and vivid and impossible you are.

i want to wrap you up inside my jacket
and keep you there, a joey.

instead, i let the long string unfurl
you tug and arc and pull
higher in the wind 
and the beckoning blue sky

i can't
i must
you grow

i cry

good

bye
