Balloon Animals

It can be frustrating

when you see a particular man walking around

like he’s always got a

sprained ankle

doesn’t he know

there are those

whose ends are tied off

by careful hands

so that they mustn’t

become anything other than what they are

if one is twisted into a fish, one cannot gallop

if one is made an elephant

one cannot fly

you are an elephant, they say

stomp your feet

have babies

look out for predators

and try to be happy.
