Back and Forth
Spinning round and round atop wicker canes
and some just spin
The carnie clown runs back and forth
Keeping the plates spinning
The onlookers watch his mad dash
to and fro
and laugh, chuckle, and gasp.
Some have their fingers in their mouths,
some hide their mouths with their hands
some cannot look away.
The spinning plates – so damn many spinning plates
Our crazy spinning plates
As we run to
