bubble pen dreams

i would not be
such a bubble pen
right now
if he
had not
inked my mind
to the sound
of free rhyme

a potpourri
of night terrors
and day dreams
i float above me
and see
bald spots
near my fontanelle
a gash in one of them

a seed
quelled with rainwater
endures the pain of breaking open
only to reveal
its purpose
and grow
a field of irises
Earth's purple eloquence
from my head
