Balloon

Balloon

Luminous afterthought of dream?
It vanishes. The body's still.
An improbably big balloon
tied to the manchild's wrist with twine
bobbles in bright air until,
unless the string breaks and it floats
away and leaves us standing here
gaping at an empty sky
in which a pale and waning moon
dims in the deepening blue of day.
