Jett Superior laid this on you on || June 2, 2003 || 1:54 am

My head is an overfilled balloon

and you are helium

keeping me floating,

silly-bobbing, directionless;

you dissipate slowly and

I descend by degrees

not noticeable from one afternoon

to the next then one day

barely clearing the floor,

almost deadweight and deflated,

because you are gone

–not the way you came,

whooshing and sudden–

silently, piecemeal and without pomp.

Here the balloon lies,

spent and imploring, pretty

ribbontail scuffed, once-smooth

latex puckered forlornly.
