commercial photography locations
(my nephew's travel photo - Rio de Janeiro)

I am hypnotized at the sight of golden crowns
a carnival morphing into bizarre celebration
an invisible glue binding them together into
a frenzied scrabble of human fragments
lost in mosaic - a spectacle of exuberance
melding into an opium dream.

The tension and excitement is palpable
One is drawn to it like moth to a flame
invigorating like brandy, heady and intoxicating
a mantle of glitter and splendor turns
the prod of life into a bauble of invincibility
surrendering to the thrills of the moment.

If I could be a leaf blown by the wind
flitting from one crown to the other
I would think no one would heed me
or whip me away, absorbed they are
dancing drunkenly in their madness
like a great wash of breaking waves.

But each year they come and gather
again to this carnival of carnivals
and I a leaf would probably be
with them being blown crazily
in spirit if not in body this way
and that way above their golden crowns
