I ... entered the poem of life, whose purpose is ... simply to witness the beauties of the world,
to discover the many forms that love can take. (Barabara Blackman in 'Glass After Glass')

Take-Off

Button up!
Make sure your strap is tight.

You don’t need a face mask;
this is a balloon.

Yes, I’m sure you won’t get airsick.
If you do I’ll slash the fee.

April PAD Challenge 15: Use the words slash, button, mask, strap, and balloon in your poem.
