Broken Clowns – Author Anne D. Salyer


Broken Clowns

I hide behind my heroes,

Clowns with broken facades.

We stare into the cold abyss

And not one of us shall blink.

Wearing our shallow smiles

We hold the darkness in our arms,

Rocking it slowly with a lullaby

Back to restless sleep.

About the Author

Anne D Salyer was born and grew up in a small town in Oklahoma. Eventually I escaped to Kansas where I met the love of my life with whom I’ve been with for 25 years. We currently reside in Overland Park with three cats, my neglected poetic children, and this raccoon puppet. All in all, it is a good life!
