Clown Contest - Poem by BEAU GOLDEN
A circus clown,
turns his head upside down
Tilts his head to the rear,
slowly sheds a tear
Katie sparkles and frowns,
She has the downs
There is a hole in her soul
Instantly read her anger and sadness
She struggles as an actress
Katie floats, a tear falls down
A painted white face frown
the tears come tumbling down
Lost and far from a michigan town
her her eyes gaze at me
Will she never be free?
the outside sparkles the inside aches,
the city shines its earth quakes
A giant Clown contest
A real tragic fest
The clown in his head walks down the center of town
Always ready to drink and drown
A white dove lands on the clowns shoulder as his tear dries
He holds Katie in his arms and silently says 'it's ok'
A 19 yr old boy strikes a tree
Cancer befalls the prom queen
She sleeps eternally
While her loved ones surround the hospital bed
Draping her angelic face with fresh white blossoms
as she lies dead
The circus clown looks back at me
shrugs his shoulders and frowns and says
' Do you see? '
'yes, i see'. I say.
And he half smiles, turns and walks away.
To return to me another day.
