THE CARNIVAL

 

 

The carnival calls to me.

Sounds of laughter

float to me in the distance.

I want to be there.

I want to be a child again

for one afternoon.

Go back in time when

life was enjoyed to its fullest.

I will dip my toes in the sand

and run to the carnival.

I will buy cotton candy and

eat it with sticky fingers.

I will ride the ferris wheel

until I am dizzy from the height.

Children are running to the rides.

I am one of them.

For this afternoon,

I am one of them.

SEND IN THE CLOWNS

The line is long

for the Ferris Wheel.

You wait.

And wait.

Then you’re on the ride.

You’re soaring high

above the crowds.

Feeling the wind

in your hair.

The ride stops short.

You’re at the top,

looking down.

You wait.

And wait some more.

Nothing is moving.

Except for the clowns.

Clowns are climbing the ride.

They’re pulling people from

their seats, and flinging

them to the ground below.

How could this be happening?

It could if it’s a dream.

I close my eyes,

praying it’s a dream.

SOAR HIGH ABOVE

Take a ride in the evening sky.

Above the buildings and cars, where

all begins to look smaller and smaller.

Soar high above the people and noise,

listen to the quiet.

And take time to take a deep breath and think.

Abandoned Amusement Park in New Orleans

A great setting for a murder mystery.

A dead body found…

Let’s think of a good spot.

A body found in the jaws

of the alligator statue.

The police look for clues.

The officer steps into the fun house.

Little does he know,

but the fun house doesn’t have a floor.

He steps in and falls into a deep ditch.

One down.

The next officer checks the top

of the long slide.

He feels himself being pushed

down the colorful slide and

his head hits the bottom with a bang.

Another down.

The last officer tries to start the Ferris Wheel

and guess what?

He’s electrocuted for his efforts.

The murderer chuckles and shuffles

off his merry way.

He didn’t even need the clown costume.
