Mandi Roberts


Pining after ethereal bubbles
Chasing pretty fancies as a child
Grasp and bust
Shattering light and beauty
In soapy outburst
A lightning bug gone dark
Leaving nothing

Still uncertain
Which shiny dream to pursue
And after years of pursuit
Will I be left with just soap suds and failure?
Someday came while I was distracted.
