Joy’s ascension

 

Ah, yes, daughter’s carnival balloon.
She in her stroller, a tethering tie
round her wrist worked loose.
In a blink the joy of
inflatable colour
spiraled away
to a sky of
blues.

 

blues.
to a sky of
spiraled away
inflatable colour
In a blink the joy of
round her wrist worked loose.

Ah, yes, daughter’s carnival balloon.

issue four, joan byrne
