Puppet Show

Rainbowed bubbles swirl
in fairground eddies of candy-floss indecision.
Above his painted booth, the puppet-master sets wooden limbs dancing to their tune
while slowly entangling in the labyrinths of exceeded expectation;
each wide-eyed child
ghostly in their laughter.
Cutting free,
the life-less hero falls
and bursts the wandering dream.

Zagreb, Croatia 1995
