He is in the dark
bawls out nothing with a smile. He performs a show: On one leg
look! DO YOU WANT TO SEE
He conjures his day
how it looks
even before the day is thought. On one leg
He continues and smells of the food he eats. DO YOU WANT TO SEE
He trots precariously on a tightrope across an invisible world
a bottomless swamp
By means of the umbrella in his hand
unfolded like a giant flower
does not fall down into anything. Stays where he is!
where he is: ONE GRAND ACT
and the applause is hard
it even runs out of the nails
