...carnival sponge...

knee deep
and if the wading comes then crack is then

grip the wheel
a little too hard
and ward it off by wishing
for rain

upcoming exit
and appearing
on the right

where all that sat before
a closed store
a scar
of recent times

is a glowing

Ferris Wheel

it is cold out
there is visible breath in my face with each breath and it fills the cabin

and yet

and lights
and lights
on the right

in the parking lot

of the closed brand name store

and (hopefully) young love
are open
for business

and the rest of the ride home
feel the drain
