I cannot believe that I did not post about this story!
This story came from my time living in a circus in San Diego. You read that correctly, though calling the TechnoMania Circus a ‘circus’ is perhaps not utterly correct. Based in a former and historical church building, this performance art group featured many of the acts I mention in the story and that title is from a quote painted on the walls. Springer the dog is as true as I can manage in a work of fiction.
This story will be available to read for free on The Colored Lens’ website in May 2016.
