“Wonderland” – a story of bearded lady love at The Spokesman Review
I met Sheena at Wonderland, a traveling carnival that took me in when I ran from home. We’d pull into town and I’d set up the sideshow booths, haul swag and stock vendors, and when the run was over, I’d break it all down. I was 16 years old, as strong as any man there. Sheena was the bearded lady, the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen. I didn’t know how much there was to want in the world until I saw her, and then I wanted it all.
