Nights at the Circus

Foiled gold

on the ballastraude

Rich red velvet

and

Blue whispers of a supernatural

body

“Extra! Extra! Read all about it!”

Smoke filled mirrors

and glances to the left

and right

elegant stages

lights and dazzling robes

with backstage

loves

“Extra! Extra! Read all about it!”

the magician

faded and fantastic

stole more of me

with just a

simple

trick

Folly and farse

Fabric and dancing

“Extra! Extra! Read all about it!”

 


This poem is inspired by the Monster She Wrote, Prompt Challenge: Day 15-Nights at the Circus. I will be trying to follow this prompt challenge as much as I can throughout the month of October! Photo by sergio souza on Unsplash.
