balloon animals (20161213)

a room full of
transparent balloons
bouncing off one another

sometimes the static
electricity joins them
together but the air
conditioner will blow
–maybe gently, maybe not–
and they separate
again

we can see through them
but what animates them
that remains invisible
the lights may as well
be off
we may as will have
pins for fingers

  1. I liked this. Then I came back and read it again. And again. There is something about the last line that has got inside my mind. Dang, it’s 4.30am. Why am I on WordPress?

  2. It’s those finger pins sticking in the gray matter. I don’t know if I should be impressed that you’re still awake or sad that you’re getting up so early!
