_____circus peanuts_____
(or) evil orange treats [part 1]

picture from metroactive dining














they involve us in their syncopatic redundancies
make us wear clown outfits and plastic wigs
*
they do tricks with pens and fold paper into birds
before juggling small woodland creatures in food courts
*
they tie unsuspecting passersby in thick thorny vines
with pink flowers that make them itch and scratch
*
they force animal shaped balloons onto children
crying hysterically if the child refuses their gift
