a red balloon blew past me today


I watched it dance in the wind
and I was jealous
but now, the street is empty
except for the people
except for the cars
and the neon lights
there are no more red balloons
for me
or for you
and I can only hope for the possibility
of something so insignificant
to breathe life into me again
tomorrow.
