TEXT OF THIS POEM

Bubble machine on a ledge
children singing as they talk
over the forgotten fence
from far away,
an ambulance
on the asphalt, again.

 

ABOUT THIS POEM

I thought this poem would be fun to write by hand. After seeing Tyler Knott Gregson’s poems on instagram, it seemed worth trying. This poem is based on a real-life happening. I just stepped outside of my house and the juxtaposition between children laughing, a visible bubble machine on a patio ledge, and the dizzying noise of an ambulance was such a sharp contrast that I rushed into the house to write it down. And sometimes that’s how creativity works, it just hits you like a ton of bricks, and if you’re lucky enough, you capture a moment, if only a little bit.
