"Clamor"

Kristin LaTourImagine the tiny
dollop
of air inside
a soap bubble

floating
around a backyard
barbecue
struggling against
its own demise

pushing and
pulling
against fate

a thin soapy
membrane
holding oceans of
air at bay
uniquely alive

for just a moment
of silky
indulgence
too good to last

listen for the
brief
calamity of rushing air
momentary spasm
echoing

across the face of the universe
you will hear
the voice
of Kristin LaTour
