The Magic Bubble
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
Huddled in the corner, the boy hides, hurt.
Not a word he shares, seemingly inert
To his surroundings, and to me nearby.
Now he notices the soap bubbles fly.
He looks, and looks like he's conflicted, scared.
Approaching, avoiding, at last he dares
To hold the handle and lower the eye
Into the bottle, near ready to cry.
On raising it up, he gives the membrane
Thoughtful looks, as though studying the pane
Of a stained-glass window, or as though he
Were the artist foreseeing its beauty.
He blows, in such a focused way, as though
Meant as a sphere for his feelings to go,
Secret ones kept safe from the world he fears.
The bubble, I sense, holds his many tears.
Having the ingredient of cornstarch,
The bubble lasts, to cross over the arch
Bridging the divide between him and me.
Open to the wonder of ESP,
I see the images on the outside,
And feel the feelings that the membrane hides.
Contacting ET is great, but what art
This is! He and I now touch, heart to heart!
