Carbon Notion

Don’t explain why carbonation bubbles appear then rise to the top.
Each air pocket lifts beyond my surface tension.

I could jump inside one blip of oxygen and ride it like an escalator
to break through the high fructose corn syrup.

The trick is to catch the carbon orb’s inception at the base of the bottle.
Try to find that little nothing out of something.

It becomes a base jump, leap of faith, through a wall of glass
like a choreographed Jackie Chan scene.

Sometimes I buy some purified water, but late in a day gone flat
I will grab a club soda to tickle my imagination.
