Do not Release

April 15,2012 on Poetic Asides: Write a poem using the words slash, button, mask, strap, and balloon in any order.

Do not Release

Button your lip
and slash those
words from your
mind before they
balloon out into
space, where no one
can strap them down
and mask your
sinister meaning.
