drunk driving jelly beans

i equate
bubble gum
jelly belly\’s
jelly belly, bubble gum
photo credit, candy warehouse 
with a tumultuous
part of my life
oddly enough
one where
coming of age
meant not only
but hope
for the future

that lacks
in the hearts
& minds
of those
who are
not exclusively
idiotic but quite
you know,
the opening scene
of st elmo\’s fire?
stupidity ravaged
brains & consistent
popped bubbles
