In the space between moments
Okay, this may sound completely absurd, but I am kind of confused on the verse that Tim wrote. I see a few possible intrepretations, but I want to be sure before I continue. So, anyone who could answer for me, please do! I want to get it rolling so more people can write! Thanx a bunch! The verse is--
What questions lurked, behind clown's paint?
Caused one to gasp, and then to faint
When first she learned, had come to town,
Out of her past, insidious clown.
So long ago, she'd felt the harm,
Sweet Mary Ann, Orleans school marm.
On basement shelf, red bulbous nose,
How long she'd kept, she only knows.
When just sixteen, had run away,
Sweet Mary Ann, what would they say?
