The three ring circus of dreams

pours in from the night

while the ring master, a real stand-up tragedian

practices his verse and prose

white faced clowns with sad blue eyes

lament the laughter that passed them by.

while the lion tamer whips himself into a frenzy

the bearded lady’s hair turns grey

an elephant I saw in my pajamas

but how it got into my pajamas I’ll never know

spoke the black faced freak

while the young violinist

played with her feet.
