Travels with a circus

After Katie Hickman

I can hardly bear to watch
the illusory men
of the old world.
They preside over the dead,
and, beneath the shimmering ocean,
the sun itself.
I should return to Mexico,
examine my hands –
these strange little gestures
are not my own.

A prompt from MslexiaPick up the closest book to you, turn to page 37. Make a poem either inspired by that page or made out of words from that page.
The book I picked up is 'Travels with a Circus' by Katie Hickman.
Note: The 2014 edition is titled, 'Travels with a Mexican Circus' (2014)
