National Poetry Month: Circus 2021 by Lynnette Spicer

Circus 2021 

By Lynnette Spicer 

 

The circus of old,  

Shy, quiet, unnoticed. 

The circus today, 

Trending, viral, the great big show. 

The circus come tomorrow,  

Bleak, with cold bodies lining the streets, 

Cold souls bouncing out of heaven’s gates. 

The circus of nevermore,  

Shows us, we are nothing more than upright animals.
