of bubbles and snowflakes

I kept sealing them up

the gates
in the walls

I wondered if you 'd ever stop
trying to figure out how to get in

what perseverance
what patience

and then there was that
damn bulldozer

didn’t know you had that up your sleeve

and the little bubbles that ignored the wall completely
sailing right over

harmless wicked little beautiful bubbles
pop right in my face
catching me totally off guard

right away I thought,
"you gotta teach me that trick"

and secretly
"so I can use it on you one day"

and I tried
but I'm not so good at getting them buoyant

mine tend to be weighted and cold
like snowflakes

but I try
I try
