pastels on the second,
racing black on the forefront;
whizzing through cement atop a circus trap,
an abrupt halting each time,
in front of an elephant act;
a heartfelt dying out.
the husks pierced through linens,
the trunk poured out a washing.
doubled in size, tripled in heart,
an invitation of rugged skin, walking on all fours;
a long way aside,
stampeding atop the cement through a circus trap,
colliding with carnival revelation:
so deathly heartfelt.
