Brightly colored consumers dazzled the streets as glittery sprinkles
Music sporadically puncuates the roast scented air
Generators squall screams of power to the food trucks serving delectables.
Children, dogs, puppies, and elderly get dragged haphazardly
threading through the tapestry of flamboyant humanity.
Laughter, shouts paging the lost, the haggling and dickering,
Hands of artisans become hands of merchants, hawking wares
I wander through the murky shades of auras blended into one
First I head down one side, recognizing repeat offenders,
enthusiastically exploring the oddities made from new and/or antiquities
Rainbows spin in place then revolve in a resolving pattern
like a quilt come to life, undulating like lovers beneath the blues.
