pinwheel pursuit

in an open air arena

below the celestial waxy waxing

the stickmen and shriekers assemble


performing forgery

with lips never sealed

entwined in a ragadang candor


so tonight the enchanters ride

gleaming mantles donned

fingers tight to sorrel-dipped wands


to end the crooked cluster

wicked and eager

to set the hooting court ablaze
