On Plastic Bubbles for Only a Quarter

Hi all-

Plastic Bubble

"She was one of those people
that if you put a quarter in the machine
and turned the crank
you'd get out in a plastic bubble
when you really wanted the bouncy ball
or the plastic spider ring

when you've forgone jerry's kids
and a handful of decade old madeup fruit candy
to try your luck at something longer lasting

now all you have is this woman
standing outside the bar and smiling
with men all around her
and you wonder what they see in her
that makes her a better toy
than this plastic bubble."
