Sigh.

I bombed two tests on Friday... so I'm not in a terribly happy place right now. >.< Sigh. Anyway, here's my Carnivale poem. Definitely not my favorite piece, but it's Carnival-y.

Carnivale

The colors simmer
with corruption,
spinning and dancing
a clown's laugh,
echoing laughter,
feigned mirth,
and screaminig of lives,
of tears,
that leering children
don't see, the hurt
of laughter that
deformities inspire,
a slap in the face,
slapstick joy,
spastic and seizing,
trust and hate
twining together,
lost to the dizzying,
dreamlike atmosphere,
The Best Show on Earth,
facepaint and leotards,
contortionists of
souls,
the curtain is up,
don't let it slip,
tame the beast,
learn to fly,
smile through tears,
nightmares don't cry.
