Great Egress

Great Egress

Great Egress – Digital Art by Wild Thing

The clown car broke
Tears drip down
Grease painted faces

The ringmaster’s voice
Hoarse and broken
He walks away

Jugglers give up
Acrobats can’t jump
Hoops rusted away

Lions wander unfettered
Grumbles belie
Once ferocious roars

Trapezists fall
From grace into nets
Without breath

Empty popcorn cups
Cotton candy cones
Left behind

Audience of one
Gets up . . .
This way to the Great Egress
