Balloon Deflating

Images I feel, the cabin has lost pressure

– Please attach your masks & belts. Women & children first.

Images I feel, the childish gift that creates joy

– then loses it’s bounce. They are the worst.

Images I feel, the journey into dreams

– that never quite gets off the ground

Images I feel, the moment the anticipation changes

– excitement becomes a sadness you’ve found

Images I feel. the sexual adventure that explodes in her face

– feels so degrading

Images I feel, the collapse of the self into my own black hole

– gritty and shaming

Images I feel, the image of a balloon deflating

– rarely shown on my face

Images I feel, the image of us Ladies & Gentlemen

– as we’re floating in space
