The orange crayon made the setting
sun possible as he held on to the string
taking him upwards attached to the rays
attached to the orange balloon that was
made possible by the birth of creativity,
outside the lines as the string swayed
as chaos ensued as the orange crayon
became smaller such force from a small
hand from the will of imagination.
