“The Showman”

A P.T. Barnum inspired editorial


Carnival, lull me to sleep.
No one can hear our voices.
I can tell your future and past
by the light of the carousel horses.
Across the world I wonder,
my moments made from years.
On a still and silent midway,
I wait for you to reappear.
-Shovels & Rope, “Carnival”
