With age, we accept things like the static on a radio
and the constant drone of traffic outside.
Words, actions and even thoughts
are used as blinds to keep off the outside view
A child's tenacity of bursting birthday balloons
gives way to mute resignation.
Outside the cubes of existence there are phantom powers
that can be burst easily like those balloons
and the 'tup' sounds would shatter our worlds only for a moment.
There is never a right moment for things
but there are right things for the moment
So, shoo away the blinds and look out.
