Party Balloon

…Ends up in the sky

in one of two ways.

You release it.  Smiling.  Humming goodbye and squinting into the sun.

Hoping to catch the very last glimpse as it dissolves into clouds.

Wondering where it will land.

Or.

The knot tied around your wrist fails you.

And it escapes your panicked jumping reach.

Withstanding a tear-filled very last glimpse as it dissolves into clouds.

Wondering where you will land.
