Renaissance Fair

But not so much the Renaissance
as the Middle Ages; not so much the Middle Ages

and with burly Viking raiders, who, far from contemplating
any murder, rape, or pillage, are standing in the coffee line,
sharing a bag of deep-fried pickles. A Morris dance
unfolds on one of the smaller outdoor stages, as vendors
hawk handicrafts of colored glass and crystal.
