Carnival
by Michael Keshigian

    Ferris wheel revolves
    velocity and glow
    a kaleidoscopic adventure

    and screams of glee
    heard ‘round the grounds
    duets with the singing carousel

    which spins
    to horse’s gallop
    toward the house of mirrors

    reflecting
    shadowy silhouettes
    of our clandestine embrace.

    Dozens of you
    touching me
    hundred of times.
