Speech Bubbles

Words come out of the mouths of relatives,

turn into a tangle of bubbles.

I cannot tell one from the other.

They join together, encase me.

They pop and drench me

so I go downstairs and spin out

my own little bubble.

  1. nice…sometimes we just need a bit of space to spin our own words… even though i’m not authistic too many words and people can drench or even drown me as well at times..

  2. curiously intriguing. I can see the speech bubbles as in comics. Then you get a little clay pipe out and do your own, in private.
