Poem A Day: pretense

We took the balloon with us (it was green)

The note said we had to.

I picked-up the mask as well (it was V for Victory, like the movie)

on the way.

And no, I didn’t forget the leather strap.

Well-worn.

I checked.

that all the buttons on my blouse were in place,

Didn’t want them to be slashed away.

Hard work, this.

Pretending.
