The World Was a Water Balloon

The hemispheres split apart like a ruptured balloon,

Miniature miracles and fog and Monday specials spilling out

like water.

Who tore my world open

for black widows, coupons, and dew?

 

I did not know the world was a water balloon

in the backyard of a playful, rogue child.
