The Hamster Man

The Hamster Man

written by: Andrew Ray Williams



runs on a loop,
over, and over
and over again.
The cog—
powder coated wire mesh,
painted blue, green, and red.

Feet furiously moving
forward and backward,
and the wheel spins,
and spins, and spins.
This man—
a lightshow curator, mesmerizes
onlookers with arrays of colors.

Stepping off
to shoulder the assemblage,
he encounters an empty room.
A debilitated beast with worn,
blooded feet, crouched beside
a blue and green wheel.
