Use the following five words in your poem: slash, button, mask, strap, and balloon. Use them in any order.

 

Your Ride

 

Forget the safety straps

this is an easy

balloon ride

masked as your life.

Feeling brave?

Go ahead,

push the button

marked “Freedom”

Feel the air

of your balloon

escape in a hiss,

propelling you

here and there,

twisting, falling.

All your fears

slashed away.

Now you are

living.
