Harlequin! a new doll, with a painted muslin face, cotton cloth, stuffing,bells, beads buttons and ribbons.
Harlequin makes me think of the poet ee cummings who wrote "Damn everything but the circus!" and...
"here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)"
