Roller Coaster Man

Climbing round ladders

of rickety frames

flying down chutes

faster and then

Climbing with burden

upon steel girder

wondering, worrying

why this world is


out of order?

Fast wooden fervor

without time to plan

the next loop

upside down hoop

shaking his brain

hoping to recoup

Roller coaster man

Climbing high, high


Arms in the air

steady tracks

not there?!

Free fall of hope

crashing in disrepair

despaired of parts

waiting for his next dare

Roller coaster man

destiny declared




candied carnival air.
