Because of the children's smiles
and crackling laughter.
Because of teenage carnival kisses
and the sweet scent of pink cotton candy
and because I am blessed to have such a curse
of circular travel
with
portrait still hooves
that have hoovered above
more country sides
and city squares
than my counterparts will ever know.

Because I enjoy the repetative romance
that beguiles the bright eyes of children who yearn for a cowboys life
and the attention of candied apple prints
left on my cheek.
Because often it seems
that it really isn't I
bound to circles.

That is why.
