how you know

you can imagine yourself
like that grumpy old man
in the animated movie
talking to his wife
wherever she is
having full conversations
and going over decisions with her
hearing her responses
when no one else can

you feel like there’s
ten thousand
multicolored balloons
tied to your heart
carrying you up
into the sky
toward the places
you always dreamed about

yeah,
that’s how you know.
