Poem: Bubble Wrap

There's no greater joy than this:
a virgin sheet of bubble wrap
smelling of that new box smell
crinkly to the ear
bouncy to the touch
looking so inviting
and...

pop!

pop! pop! pop!
pop! pop!
pop!
pop!
pop!
pop!
pop!
pop!
pop!

pop!
pop! pop! pop! pop!
(hey! no fair! that was more than your share!)
pop!
pop!
pop!
(grab your own side!)
pop!
pop!

pop!
pop!
pop! pop! pop! pop! pop! pop! pop! pop! pop!
pop! pop! pop! pop! pop! pop! pop! pop! pop!
pop! pop! pop! pop! pop! pop! pop! pop! pop!
pop! pop! pop! pop! pop! pop! pop! pop! pop!
pop! pop! pop! pop! pop! pop! pop! pop! pop!
