at the fair

when you can’t go to the fair

in the charming center of your town

because it’s been canceled

for an indefinite period of time,

it’s time to bring it inside

with all its magic.

so we put up those fairly lights

along those old beams on the ceiling,

spiced our punch with wild berries

and kindly asked Titi Winterstein to sing for us

from her old vinyl.

clearly, everyone else had gone home

and now it was just us

left out there at the fair

swaying back and forth a bit

at midnight

under our own set of stars.

sometimes, truly, when you can’t make it out to the fair

on the market square of your charming town

you’ve got to bring it inside

in order to keep the magic flowing

and travel through different worlds;

because they, these worlds,

will inevitably open up

fully and wholly

no matter where we are

with just the right equipment

and eyes closed.
