Listen to Christina Veladota read her piece:
Today we will Ferris wheel. We will Tilt-A-Whirl. We will long lines patiently before
the Zero-Gravity of panic. We will Zero-Gravity. We will candy apples, cotton candy.
Funnel Cakes. We will balloons popping, balloons floating to their escape. We will real
& painted ponies. We will shouts to win tchotchkes for your women. We will Tunnel of
Love & believe we haunted house. We will sometimes hands to our mouths. We will
band of teenagers & lights at evening in a small city within a small city for a flash at
summer’s end. We will not mystic our future until its inventor palms our cash.
