Lady Problems -- a Flash 60 poem


Lady Problems
 
Lady on the flying trapeze
Circus came and we left
My love, secrets are out
Came to fruition I thought

Went to London
for Trapeze School
Played more than studying
Fell in love with a taxi driver

You can't have two lovers
or, neither should know
Trapeze flyer discovered
she flew the coup

Be sure you've got wheels

Today I'm linked with  with the Real Toads in the
Imaginary Garden, on her post, Words Count With Mama Zen
 
Her instructions:  "Step right up and let the following vintage photos take you back to the circuses of days gone by. Be delighted!  Be amazed!  Be inspired . . . and write a poem of 60 words or less."  My work is exactly 60 words including the title.

The wheels make all the difference if you make such a choice.
