A day at a carnival or state fair
A Poem a Day Trophy



Tradition of madness
    September State Fair
Come one and all
            Carnies entice

    Scents of secret comfort food
            funnel cakes  turkey legs
                      sno-cone delight    indian taco

Sun sears  tank top
shoulders          Sweat    d
                                            r
                                              i
                                              b
                                            b
                                            l
                                              e
                                                s
  a trail of droplets wishing for
            a gust of wind

Lovers link fingers    oblivious to others
  a roller coaster of hormones
        screams      thrills
arms wave              fingers grip

Ferris Wheel shadows
        the fantasy land
promising a view of      carnival
      crazines          carousel of kids

Money leaking        from
          limited sources caving to the
    begging and bantering
                  games    tickets    rides
                      I need more

Joints jerk and ache
  pushing through      lines of
strangers    going the wrong way

                Tummy
                        h  r  s
                          u  t
                  Mommy

Hours of memories
stored within    Sensory overload
          Now where'd we                          park the car
