circus

remember 
those who say to you
that you are the devil
while their white smirk
gleams from red curtains
forget
it takes one to know one
forget 
that one second they were
buying popcorn in striped bags
and another they were dancing
in the ring
forget
that there are plenty of reasons
why the largest circus
does not have 
a house of mirrors
forget
that while they were busy
straightening their halo
they were really
the devil all the time
