23


cool down Wednesday Trinidad and Tobago



COOL DOWN WEDNESDAY
Center stage/roiling wave-ends:-
Wet the feet of fleeting thespians;
They stomped through the asphalt and the greens;
Warrior, enchantress, bird, octopus, jewel, jab
In the Monday sun of the Carnival
In the Tuesday sun of the Carnival
The Carnival sun dances, in radiant bedazzlement
The fans, awed in cultural wizardry, of colour and craft
Cool Down Wednesday:-
Roiling wave-ends wet the feet of thespians
The Wednesday sun is harsh and unrelenting
The Wednesday sun is sober and unforgiving

of Porthcurno, Cornwall

  1. I think I would prefer the unforgiving sun to the grey clouds of the north.. happy Carnival though, and may the thespians rest.

  3. It seems like a treat to see those cultural dances, the thespians and their colorful flair, but an unrelenting and unforgiving sun would definitely make me crave some waves!

  7. I like the elements of repetition here, and the references to dramatic performances.
