A LOST CLOWN LOOKS BACK

August 5, 2015

It’s good I guess that guilt ignore me

And better yet,  that  regret may

forget me, unknown,  after it all goes down.

Actually,  clowns,

Surely cloistered  in cells near,

Surely watch the latches,

They’re keen for keys that wait inside them, some;

Compromises, cast in a cold metal fit.

Here’s the thing;

The king knows nothing if not

To let them  spring them open,

Anxious, fast toward the lights,  pass massive

Ancient doorways.

Gone, they get off to make fun

For themselves.
