finale

street juggling finale
looking straight up
throwing those balls so high
I didn’t see the kid
romper suit
reins trailing
wobble out of the crowd
and punch me

right in the doodads

as I hit the floor
the demon returned
to its parents
as my juggling things
landed on me
and I tried
not to be sick

it was the biggest laugh
I ever got
