An Insider’s Glimpse Before the Show

Before the circus starts
The performers prepare
Their routines in casual dress
No sequins or capes
Just t-shirts and track pants
As the aerial silk or tissu girl
Practises her death-defying stunts
Above the empty audience stalls
For now, the magic is unspoken
No ringmaster calls forth the oohs
And aahs! But still there’s wonder
And a hush when the girl
Falls to within inches of the floor
All that is missing, that makes for
A soft landing, applause.
