Freak Show

My mind is a circus train that runs on a rusted track over gorges where dragons swim. The colorful carriages are filled with thoughts dressed as clowns, whose makeup is streaked by sweat, after all having a turn with the bearded lady. They’re not sure what town they’ll stop in next, but it’s been a while since the last show. My hand is on the throttle, but the rails decide where I’ll end up.

driving to therapy
for the first time in years . . .
I take the long way
