CLOSING DOWN THE CIRCUS

 

 

I close down tonight’s circus.

It is not a success.

The players are weary

and the animals have run  away.

The hero has become the antagonist;

the heroine, a clown.

Storms have torn the tent

and the roof leeks.

 

It is time for the circus to move on.

I have no idea where it will go.

I just know it’s over for now.

 

I turn my back

on the broken violin,

the fallen trapeze,

the humiliation.

 

And gazing up at an overcast sky,

I remember to disengage

from the phenonema.
