Poem: This Kind of Thing Doesn’t Happen Often and When It Does You Should Pay Attention

This Kind of Thing Does­n’t Hap­pen Often and When It Does You Should Pay Attention
–John Stone
From Music from Apart­ment 8

      i thank heav­en some­body’s crazy
      enough to send me a daisy
      –e.e. cummings
On Pied­mont Road, going north,
before my car there float­ed forth
a soapy bub­ble in the traffic,
glis­ten­ing and holographic.
It drift­ed down into my path,
this ghost­ly sphere from some­one’s bath.
I watched it bob and almost tickle
A Harley-David­son motorcycle
then rise (as it got quite exhausted)
That’s where I left it, fair and frosted.
For this unex­pect­ed act
I thank heav­en (I think), in fact,
that some­one went to all the trouble
to blow me a bubble.
