Adult Child

author's note:

"I know an illusion when I see one."
       -- from the novel Soultime,
           by Michael R. Patton


Born into a carnival
I remain a child

puzzled by the colors
of all those lights

including the cruel flashes
that cause me to wince.

As a child I still try
to comprehend this vision,
as an adult, I've chosen
to keep my eyes open...
