>once again it happens … big tent poetry # 5


It rose and I to reach

the dead love I once longed for

As I snuck behind the psychedelic curtains

swinging in the breeze

To enter into a strange and different time

and space

The forbidden chamber of temptation

In the years to come I will be accused of many


but as it rises I am lured once again
