I'm not new to this show,
I've seen the clowns, dancing
girls, the uneasy lion, rubber
bodied jumpers on their wires.
What does this mean? Because
I've loved, I've lost the feeling?

Because I've torn apart the toy,
found its nuts and bolts and wheels
I'm disillusioned? Perhaps,

it is the simple things, the flawless
egg, the empty box, the golden light
streaming through a window, the way
a hand moves, pointing to the star
preserves enchantment.
