County Fair

by Demi Richardson on February 15, 2017

there is love in the way of you,

and at the fair,
cotton candy sticking to everything you touch
           (my cheek,
           the inside of my wrist you can
                      taste my pulse –)

I lost you in a house of mirrors,

           which is to say,

I maybe meant to lose you.
