merry-go-rounds are not the most exciting rides.
with their around and around and up and down
in a tiresome, predictable way.
but they're beautiful in their own right.
a little freakish
a little garrish..
with their screaming bright colors and animals with manic expressions
imploring you to ride on them
they do the best they can within the confines of their poles.
a certain bizarre beauty.

the most poignant thing in my memory about merry-go-rounds was always the metallic smell that went along with them. I can totally smell it without even trying to conjure it. :)
