Just an abstraction poem from my Foundations class back in the day.
Curiosity peeks under the curtain,
Wearing just a plain grey coat and boots,
Exploring the next tent.
Vanity slithers in a glass bowl,
Dressed in a goldish-green corset and matching snakes,
Contorting in ways only reptiles should.
Mystery foretells in a candlelit hut,
Draped in lush silks and glitter,
Caressing a crystal ball.
Illusion steps into the spotlight,
Shrouded in black sleeves and pockets,
Pulling rabbits out of hats.
Pride struts into the ring,
Donning a top hat and red tailcoat,
Thanking you for coming to the show.
