Giant Carnival Swing

Atop the giant carnival swing, flung all human control, relinquished, colored bulbs, blink, clouds pass moon, music twinkles, through wireless pipes,
your bright face, distilled through motion, a thought
biological amusement chained and dangling
a loose hat on the ground
operators touch buttons
sound of fun
we ride
life to change minds
spinning higher
our center column tilts each of us
forces friendship, fear, inexplicable
unions unicorns universe
atop the giant carnival swing.
