230th Weekly Poetry Contest winner: Arts du cirque

by Lee Nash

stars, salt-shaken,
pepper night’s marquee –
moon one day from full

embroidered corsets,
ropes of bodies,
galaxies of talc –

this friend could be
a lover

down the paper helicopters
spin like happy brides

and in this crowd of strangers
two ghosts
