Clowning in the City of Lights


I looked and looked
beyond the deep and the shallow
and connected the dexterity
of my fingers to your brain

Of course you want to know
if I can throw circles
round the Eiffel stake.
And after more looking

I convinced myself life is a circus
and I your smoking puppet
blowing rings
around your Fingers

Yes, YES your Sleight of thOughts
gOt me diZZy and oFF kilter
and I wAnt to be in Paris
a juGGling clOWN just like yOu
