Kaleidoscope Online |Black and White Stripes: Donna Webber Adams

Slowly but surely,
spellbinding sights of the magic show, the parade, the three ring circus
Fuse Together;
A dancing elephant, cloaked in sequence pulls a rabbit out of a top hat,
Tigers hold flaming hoops for a marching band to jump through,
A conjurer skewers a beauty queen.
Voices, heartening, delirious, pious, paralysing
Fuse Together,
pirouetting furiously til only white noise is audible.
A desert storm blinds me.
Bitten mercilessly by tiny grains of sand
and disoriented by shifting dunes advancing and receding
as if attacking and retreating,
Chaos and Confusion
Fuse Together into black and white stripes.
