And the circus leaves town


The big top coming down
the elephants,
tucked inside their semi trucks
with lions
tigers
and bears,
and the cotton candy machine
that Rick works on
as the semi-pulls away
and teary eyed
the last children
run after the semis
crying for the elephants and the clowns.
But the circus is gone now
to the next town
to the next chance
and
with nothing left to show
but the quiet sound of trash
floating in the breeze.
