the bubble

the art allows you to stay shielded
cloaked in a never-ending array of colors and shadows
blocking from view every pockmark and each scar
from the days when you sowed freely on the streets
never able to see here from there and ignoring
the pain of too short nights and screechingly hot and bright days

the painty glow allows you freedom of movement inside the bubble
keeping the crowd guessing, keeping the unwashed
interested in what’s bubbling within, no one noticing
the color of the exhaust, the color of deception, and
each slight cocooned in jelly-bean flavours, your smile
keeping the beer flowing and the joviality on tap
