Week 19 – Carnival #1

One Night Only

In the sweaty summer night, the moon melted behind wheezy clouds

Noise hung solidly over the dirt and straw of the midway grounds

Hucksters and carnies shouted over the crowds, luring the unsuspecting

While bells and sirens screamed and strobe lights flashed.

People laughed, yelled, and cheered

While drinking beer, and soda.

Eating fried everything, cotton candy, and elephant ears.

One night only

At the carnival.
