Every rivulet run off
the body here is a sluice
back in the sky’s glass

Go back to the ocean above

becomes the thing the glacier
says to put itself to sleep

Meanwhile a woman fills balloons
with helium for her daughter’s birthday

blue white pink purple
She tethers them to the birthday girl’s chair

where they hover lovingly as if watching
