Johnny's Mother lives up stairs but she can't see him. He's a retrograde below typical and it's more than she can take.
When he wakes up in the morning she quivers because she can feel every move he makes. She swore she wouldn't be like this... that she would not manage his.... differences.
Tiny bubbles.... that's what she concentrate's on when the impulse to go to the window and slide open the thick black curtain overwhelms her. 'Tiny Bubbles' is the song she throws on the the old record player when she hears him turn the bolt lock to head out the door for his day. Tiny bubbles is what she counts on in her pink champagne. Reds and greens and yellows and berries finally float up from her head. Tiny bubbles to keep her from thinking of her Johnny. Tiny little bubbles. She swore she wouldn't be like this.
