Fairy Floss

By Ryan Quinn Flanagan

Fairy Floss

Follow fairy floss
around the county fairgrounds
long enough
and you begin to see the rollercoaster
in everything

that silly uncomfortable way
vomit sits in your throat
unwilling to pull the trigger

on breaded corn dog winners
after dark

and darts dull as librarians
challenging you to pop
three balloons
for a prize

on the hustle

while the guess your weight guy
with an ear piece
never misses.
