the circus

these imprisoned
creatures of God

dressed as buffoons
subjugated for the

pleasure of the payer
and the profit of the purveyor

their place in the
created order stolen

and perverted by those
who simply don’t know

the difference between
caretaking and dominion

“the circus” is pejorative
for the will of those who

subject this good world
to decay as it groans

in the pangs of childbirth
until we look like God’s children
