Day 16 of 30 Poems/30 Days

‘The Lion Tamer’

I am this slight desperation
waiting in the shadows,
I have this willingness to live
despite no remaining time.

The animal roars at me
and so I give way to its rage,
it tears at my flesh and my life
discovering my true pain.

The circus electric,
powered by laughing children,
the small elephants watch on
as the magicians yell, “abracadabra”.
