LISTEN, CHILDREN

1.

his eyes closed

his hand(rise) on his chest(fall)

the curb   his pillow

feet

walk by

2.

his puffed up cheeks

his expanding balloon

POP!

blue rubber on tarmac

his cheeks deflated

leaves

listen to his wail

(blue rubber on tarmac)

3.

a torn balloon

flailing about

held by little fingers

kissed by

innocent lips

breathing life into it.
