Spectacle of the Century

April the quintessential Clown
a self-educated & pragmatic jokester
in demand to entertain Royalty
the nobility & commoners alike

No wisdom will be embarked upon
this cold & viciously unforgiving night
instead be prepared to die of laughter
as the Walls come crashing down

april two thousand twenty-one

momentary levitation

we danced and we laughed
far into the night
moonlight in our eyes
and tomorrow nothing
but a meaningless notion

invisible music plays
against the wind
turning tree branches
into violin strings
and sounding like
birdsong vibrations

we dance and we laugh
far into the night
while tomorrow is simply
a notion in our minds
that may or may not
come to pass
