From Leah Horlick:

August 13, 2015

How her teeth gleam

sharp when she throws those hoops in the air, how the listeners

leap to twist through then, flames so close they singe

your hair. She wears a horse’s bridle on her

left wrist to signal she is not to be kept, and she blisters

under its chafe.

– Ringmaster, from For Your Own Good
