Carousel

I imagine me on the rim of oval circle and my body walking on the track.
Body decides to move in concentric circles,widening circles around park.
It touches the park’s periphery and moves from there in widening circles
First on the roads skirting the park and moving away towards the lake.

Near the lake are men in black who smelled of God’s incense in the hills.
Body walks past men and women frothing at their mouths with tooth-paste.
On the lakeside the men and women dealt in animal and aquatic bodies.
Those were bodies who sold dead fish and goats’ bodies on the lake side.

The goats being dead in blood and flesh,their bodies hang upside down
The fish ,since dead ,rest in peace in the fisher-woman’s brown basket.
Body comes back , returning to the park and me on the rim of the circle.
From my balcony shirts and trousers stared as if there was me in them.
