i’d like to be weightless once again

once there was a girl who loved balloons
and she loved them red
fierce and vibrant

her uncle said
“do not pick a red car
it is easy to see
especially when you get into trouble”

just like her heart
it is easy to see (fall)
and (get into trouble)

one day she was so happy
she traded the balloon for
a hand

and somehow she felt
she was more weightless
than her fierce, vibrant
red balloon

she laughed at Newton
“you are wrong!”, she said.
shiny red objects
like balloons and cars
were meant to be weightless
and to be easily seen

like her heart.

but Newton’s dead
and her balloon was lost
in the vast blue sky
even if it was easily seen.
