                Experimental Girl


She’s the phony beast

who can’t stand all the directions

she thinks she’s going,

part of a traveling show

she claims to be the director

and dramaturge for:

lions, tigers, and bears,

either playing loud trombones

or popping excessive balloons,

all of it’s in the mix

of a miasma that seizes her attention,

but there isn’t a show,

and she’s not moving anywhere,

she’s just spinning in place

so fast reality can’t keep up
