Clown

I had been drawn into a dark circus of a world; a world where high-wired voices had giggled so delicately, over nothing.

This is the spirit of the circus, they had voiced with curled lips, and it’s about laughing over fake flowers, to entertain the curious.

Summers had slipped, and my laughs had burned out like old rings of fire. The mouths of jugglers had wheezed at my woeful face.

A circus is no place for a sad heart, they’d chorused.

    I’ve always been fascinated and drawn to circus and clown metaphors. That’s one creepy picture — did you draw that?

    • Thank you so much. I am glad this line has inspired you. When writing this, I wanted the character to reflect on a regular well-known act he undertakes on stage – that is both fresh for us, but feels tiresome for the character. Thank you so much for your lovely comment x

    I love the way your personal feelings are juxtaposed, the angst with the mirth of the circus. Anand Bose from Kerala
