Cotton candy hair, candy red lips, maple sugar kiss, she a girl all guys miss, when the fair moves on

There is nothing like a Fair, it is anything but fair, it is phenomenal!

Affairs worth remembering!.

I truly love that fair lady 
who dances but 
once, or twice a year 
in the browning fields 
of Summer and Fall.
She spreads her tented skirts
and sets her enticements all around,
staking her claim to all 
the small town lovers
who wander under her 
multicolored jewels.
The whirligigs spin,
and the carousel
of her mounted ponytails fly,
with tiny tots hanging on
for a brief escape,
to the magic of this
unforgettable night.
The ferris wheels of her eyes
flash in the midnight star scape.
I once shared a first kiss
becoming a pupil in her
dizzying heights, 
as we rocked, and locked lips
high in the sky.
The lines of her palm where
fortunes are read,
whisper eerily
across the crystal ball,
that reflects her gypsy eyes.
She swirls like cotton candy,
and the men throw coins
for a glimpse of her 
sugary sweet smile.
She scatters a colorful 
menagerie of stuffed animals, 
for any who would dare 
to take a chance,
and dance with 
her best friend Lady Luck.
The carnies bark out her
seductions near the back
of this grand ladies world.
There she offers her
deepest secrets, 
the castoffs, infamous 
geeks and the freaks,
animals with extra limbs graze
sadly amidst all manner, 
of the strange and unwanted,
painted in vivid details
on the canvas of her 
biggest purse, they are locked
tight in small vestibules
where many gather to 
thank God they are normal.
She feeds the masses
always cooking with steamy onions,
and sausages plump with juice,
apples bathed in caramel,
and elephant ears 
hear the quieting of many 
tummies grumbling.
I've had many affair 
to remember in the 
cinnamon scented air, 
perfumed by her beauty
and temporal grace,
but then she is 
far too quickly gone,
off to make another 
townie love her,
leaving only a vacant field,
and my lonely stare
and emptied wallet 
to mark her passing.
