The Traveling Circus 
by Russell Edson

A white-faced clown lying in the gutter like an old tennis shoe. The circus has left town…

The last time the circus left town, it left the fat lady dumped on the sidewalk like a pile of cottagecheese wearing lingerie. 

Packing and unpacking, the circus always on the move, always forgetting something. 

One time even forgetting to leave town...
