The arrangement of the eighty-one poems inside Circus Americana creates a story arc. The first two sections—“Not Getting Along” and “Bewilderment”—set the stage for the third section, “Burned Out.” The last two sections, “Friends” and “I Love You,” share incitements for enjoying more of the show. For you, my reader, I wish a sense of enlightenment (however false, however fleeting) and a little fun.
