vacuum balloon

i took the vacuum balloon
up high
to catch the end
of a piece of string

which shipped me into space
golgotha pimpernel
unembalmed mistress
bithqueen albermarle

parlour tricks
play old maid with me!
these hands
are my grandparent's hands
and theirs were theirs
passing along
the set of keys
that now i give to you
