LC 1955 Paisley Skirt
Cape Cod county fair.
Sweet smells of mischief, fireworks, cotton candy, sputtering spareribs and scorching brakes from the roller coasters.
You have on this tea length skirt (made it yourself), riding this spritely-painted merry-go-round, waiting for him to spring aboard this dizzy creaking platform.
Band starts to play… it’s a Sousa march, Semper Fidelis, your favorite.
Each foot and every single leg muscle below your knees is under the total control of Sousa’s fatuous, fabulous mind controlling patriotic serenade. He wrote in 1888, said it brought such emotion, he wrote it in tears.
Young lady riding next to you compliments your skirt. When you turn back, he has settled onto the blue horse next to you.
