what goes up


one last red balloon
says the party’s over.
we can let the record
needle skip a few more
times, dance one last
rhyme or reason
with the rising sun;
the results are the same.

it’s last call for ever-afters.

the walls are tumbling down
and i don’t yet know
your name.

  1. Love the part about the record skipping — and letting it do so. This could be about all those dreadful middle school dances!
