Clowns in Carnivals made of Clay

evil clowns, carousel, carnival, stormy night, leaving town

Clowns in carnivals

made of clay

standing still

night today

riding long

carousel horse

frozen face

painted white

drowned out

benign fright

pulling rings

puppet strings

circus mirrors

shedding nearer

fat ladies sing

coming clearer

coming closer

round and round

riding horse

pole slows

up and down

edging music

clowns in rows

on the ground

metal speakers playing


clowns get serious




we speak

withered stillness


rolled up

nice and tight

tethered kite

pitched up tent

reading palms

lightning strikes

in the night



stillness wins

in the town.
