At the Circus
Interesting place, the circus, all kinds of alien carneys hanging around waiting to perform, some leaning, wrapping limbs possessively Laocon-like around each other while standing at the bar.
Others alone, eyes meeting, then locking in perfect comprehension or turning away in the condescension of the presumed-upon: how dare s/he! It can be amusing, being the audience, watching the circus while waiting for the next glass slipper.
(Funny thing about glass slippers these days theyre always two sizes two small, unless theyre half a size too big. In either case the foot doesnt fit and the slipper shatters. Its better when the shoes too big. That way it slides off and breaks and theres no harm to the metatarsals or the long and elegant toes. Trying to squeeze into a glass slipper too small is a bitch, and you dont know til you try that it aint gonna fit. Appearances can, as they say, be deceiving. But I digress back to the circus).
In the center ring the hopefuls, Some clutching sweating mugs of beer, almost swaggering in their nonchalance, others with delicate bejewelled fingers circling glasses of various shapes and sizes filled with a dizzying palette of exotic distillations. Surely the blonde in black is drinking a White Russian, although what shed do if she ever met one a Russian, that is is open to intoxicating speculation.
Shes eyeing the guy with the perfect ass and long legs armored in denim but hes oblivious, smoking determinedly and tossing down shotafter shot tequila, Im guessing determined to drown whatevers eating at his soul in the harsh cactus juice of regret. ~ excerpted from At the Circus, 2012 RC deWinter
