POEM: bottle and balloons


bottle and balloons

today I put a note in a bottle
but I live far from the water
so instead I tied the bottle
to six red helium balloons
then I climbed onto the roof
watched them drift upward
until I lost them in the clouds
I’ve wanted to send this note
ever since that day years ago
seems unlikely it will land
in your yard, since you don’t have one
but I feel better knowing it’s out there
floating through the summer sky
