I remember...

I remember...


legs climbing

over benches

sawdust puffs


bottom bumps

animal smells

lollipops & candy

floppy clowns,


painted smiles

striped pant stilts

tall feathers on

horses circling


dancing tutu dogs

distant lion’s roar

monkey chatter

clattering cages

grey wrinkled skin

ground shaking

elephants landing

colours flying


magical dreams


30 years later

I still surround

myself with acts

seeking the spotlight
