Amusement Park

By Samantha Larrivee

6:00 darkness and 9:00 doom
3:00 she prays to wake up in the afternoon
When the paranoia sets in again
She’ll see faces in the hallway’s end
Herself in the shattered glass in a hall of broken mirrors
Twisted creatures in the coat-rack
She’ll walk in circles on the carousel of graves
And she’ll know she can’t get back
from this fantasy land
To reality
