Blowing Bubbles (Speakeasy #92)


Blowing bubbles in milk always feels good.

The sound takes me right back to my childhood.

Popping, gurgling, it rises in the glass.
Instantly the frothy globules amass.

So then do memories from days gone by,
All with an eternally sunny sky,

A time of dolls and bears, and being good,

Of toy cars and a play-mat neighbourhood.

As I think, my drink drains away loudly.

I top it off by then belching proudly.
