Street Performer

He is dressed in white 
from head to toe
Stiff pose
Painted face
Sans expressions
Not a blink,
Eyes focused
At distant lamp
Stands there on a box
In the town square
People walk around him
See him
A passing glance
Is he a man?
Breathing, or
A stone sculpture
A monument
A living legend

Happy child comes along
Jumping, laughing, skipping
Throws a coin in the tumbler
The mask man moves
to thank her
Child shriek with fright

People stop to gaze
He is no beggar
But a street performer
Much disciplined
In a race
