Your suggestions

Hang like

Pink streamers

From the

Chipped white walls,

Decorating for all occasions

As long as

the colors are loud

And the theme obnoxious.

My thoughts unroll

On cold paint

As bright yellow

Caution tape.

Black letters spell out

Potential

Consequence.

We celebrate

The same events

a little differently.


Your words pile
O
n each other
Like billions of bubbles.

Their soapy sheen fills the room
With a rainbow of colors,
Dazzling your audience as they shine.

Listeners reach out to touch
These magical,
S
parkling spheres,

Wanting to
T
ake them home,
To study them and understand.

But they pop
Y
our precious ideas,
And anxious,

Grasping fingers
Now s
ticky
With evidence of their crime

Are shoved
I
n deep pockets
Of common sense,

Where they nervously jingle
Keys to places they know
And now are content to stay.
