carnival man

by Carole Z. Spinelli

i fell in love with a carnival man
slick as glass
bold and brass
narrow hips
ample lips
muscled arms
wicked charms

step right up, lady fair
raven hair, lovely eyes
win the prize, try your luck
just a buck

i fell in love with a carnival man
smiling wide
reeking pride
cigarette
cool coquet
curly hair
comely snare

step right up, lose my turn
feel it burn, give some more
play the whore, one more shot
all i've got

i fell in love with a carnival man
all the while
seeping guile
plays the game
feels no shame
gets it on
then he's gone
