Headline Poem 9/24/14 -- Mr. Balloon Man

Mr. Balloon Man 

Well then, 
what happens after 
you've gathered 'round 
the guests, 
and 
twisted the bulging 
pieces 
to create a blue and purple 
mess 
disguised
as a message
in its own disguise?
Does it bother you that you 
scare the people 
when the colors 
pop
and collide,
and burst with specks of 
spit and residue, 
and fragments,
leaving them splattered with 
broken clown hearts 
and elephant arms?
