Bubbles

Poetry

Growing up, bubbles are fun.
They kind of just lazily float
and you chase them
and pop them
and have a ball.
Then, they become less special.
They get worse.
They represent a system,
a systematic way
of measuring intelligence;
of measuring worthiness.
"Fill in the bubbles completely
with a number 2 pencil."
Bubbles come to change you
until you are the one to pop.
