CAROUSEL

CAROUSEL

carousel
this familiar tune
sounds so weird

merry go round?
no!
this thing    off by itself

carousel
every full time round
this odd face

carousel
choo choo whistles
frightening dissonance

carousel
off by itself
timeless riders

carousel
out of time
distant coaster rumbles

carousel
different time
different place

    Carousels do often seem to be apart from other hair rising amusements, Daver. A reflective piece...where one can allow their thoughts to turn around and around.:) Best wishes, Love, Mikki

    Daver, I kept thinking of "Stop the World, I Want to Get Off." Life can be such a scary ride sometimes, and I like the mystery of how this carousell started by itself. Probably it was in your memory. Very nicely done, my friend. (I can hear that distant thunder rumbling.) Well done! Love, Carolyn

    There is something malevolent about a carousel. Kids feel it, adults too. daver
