Hour 18–At the Circus

It was a public hallway

at the Westchester County Center

surrounding the arena

hosting the circus

Must have been an intermission

For the boy to be there

and see

a clown in full make-up and outfit smoking

into the pay phone

and hear the voice

of an everyday adult

arguing about money

the elastic holding his strawberry nose in place

plainly visible
