Carnival Appetizer

im at the carnival late tonight
with lights reflecting
off the freaks and devils
try to tell me
im so impure
wading in cotton candy surf,
licking it off the bucket
we rock at the top of this ferris wheel mountain.
youre so hungry
for the fairy tales
of two head monsters
and siamese madness.
i just wanted to get on the ride
for once
and not close my eyes
opium smoking china man of mystery,
stares me down.
i run to the fortune teller
but her death card is drawn,
show your spiny skin to lizard man
he will eat you whole.
it’s a wounded wonderland.
spinning on the merry go round
until horses mouths move
the big top man pulls you off.
bait for the strong man
tonight
you are his princess
in distress,
saving him face from the french whores.
lose you in the smoking mirrors.
trap doors and magic tricks,
you’re fatalism’s girl tonight
