Crushing Paper Lanterns

Talking to the clown
Avoiding its questions
Poking at the sun
Moving toward the rim
Scratching at the shell
Layering sums bare eyeballed

Her swift feet fail to flee
Elegant fingers tied in knots
Long neck slick with sweat
Inside self contorts outside shape
World collapses paper lantern
Talking to herself
