leaning

i picked her up

at the travelling

circus

after-party

(yeah, there is such a thing),

 

lines off the

funny mirrors

 

carnie threesomes

 

cotton candy bushes

 

fried goods

 

we’re all part of the session

where we learned a valuable

 

lesson

 

that some things

shouldn’t be mixed

 

like whips, tigers,

and orgies

 

nor can they be won

by tossing

oversized balls

into undersized

jugs

 

or aiming syrup

at the

clown’s mouth,

 

testing my strength

consuming the weight

 

flopping around in the cage

 

down and out

and over the hill

 

put out to pasture

put out to pasture.

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
