Cirque

This circus of catatonic performers
little pieces floating away
is fine with me
watch the cirque
colours blurring
into one pretentious head spin.
These jesters chords
dangle
in your own kings court
at last
your strings fall,
a puppeteer’s reward
contented and free but not free at all
your painted face
still performs.
