candy striped tent

candy striped tent
fumes of fairy floss
battered sausages
fairy princess dolls on sticks
swivelling clown heads
ping pong balls
stuffed toy prizes to impress
whirligigs to catch the wind
in giggling spirals…

wide eyed children
shaking with excitement watch
double jointed clowns tumbling
slapstick rituals tempting fate
tightrope walker feigns a fall
collective sharp intake of air
expelled as balance is restored
dogs in ruffled collars
waltz on hind legs
recalling lions
balancing on chairs…
