Henry and the Red Balloon

Red balloon
caught in a swirling pocket of panicked air
Thub-thub-thubbing frantically, trapped
in the corner between wall, garden gate,
and you,
mesmerised, frightened
by this unknown entity
though regarding it still with that intensity
reserved for your prey
eyes dilated and pulsing
a brief questioning glance past your shoulder
at me
pulling up in the car just on time
to see you drink in another of life’s mysteries.
