A golden balloon

in poetry •  17 days ago 

I called you beautiful
and you called yourself a golden balloon.

You called yourself a golden balloon?

you turned my compliment into a conversation on single use plastic for the vain purpose of celebrating minor human achievements,
plastic choked down by song birds
& sea turtles
and such, you reminded me to file down my sharp edges,

you reminded me how prone you are to pop.

XX monique
