Galesburg, Illinois, a paper town.

And I was a paper doll.

The cold, bitter wind blew crisp fall leaves across the fairgrounds

Scented with

Funnel cakes and apple cider slushies

Sweet, sugarful, caramel apples

Mouthwatering, saccharine, kettle corn.

Beside the farmers rounding up cattle for judging
Behind the bar snapping on “ok to drink” wristbands

Two teens, Trouble One and Trouble Two

No names, just faces, and a 9mm

I stood, frozen in time
