Carnival (1998)

By James Moats in Asheville, NC

this silence is killing me
it's driving me crazy
let's talk about nothing at all
sometimes life feels like a day

at a carnival
where the rides are held together
with rubber bands
and the drivers of
the bumper cars are covered in
shaving cream
sunglasses chain wallet
everything you need to be
a carnie

let's talk seriously
i want to know your thoughts about anything
i wish that you would talk to me
with the laughter in the distance
you can tell neil diamond is in town
how could he ever stay away
from such a culturally diverse place

which side of the social reef
do you think they would be
secure on shore or floating out to sea
and where would the carnies be
