The Minnesota State Fair begins tomorrow. It’s an honor to bring together fairgoers and artists at our booth each year. We hope you find these artists entertaining and thought provoking. Today, we bring you a poem by MCD State Fair poet laurate, Adina Burke. Adina has also written a blog post reflecting on inclusion at the fair.
1915-Ye old Nostalgia
lull of foreboding music played by two skeletons.
Sky Ride, back and forth banter
Sea of people far below the
“Ope! Didn’t see you there.”-sorry!
Kamikaze pendulum swing.
Community in The Great Together
Reflection of innocent time
Dark Haunted Castle like moon to Bright Sun of Summer
Martha’s insurmountable cookies
Recollections of home
Wonder or something like
Galloping horses –
Confined butterflies daring to fly.
If only for your amusement
