Carnival Barker

They made memories
During our marriage
About which now
They reminisce
A smile too wide
The tale was rigged
The very definition
Of carnival-dissonance
Contortion-making
Frayed ticket taking
My history has become
A hall of funhouse mirrors
Shifting floors
And nowhere stairs
With their reflection
Everywhere

-me
