[ Stephen King inspired ] Encore Performance

Artist gone mute  

Not on strike, for mime's  
sake or because the show  
didn't go on  
You simply don't recall the lines  
---It can be so elusive at times---  
a face scrubbed clean of cream  
where expression once was;  
vagueness being an understudy  
does a curtsy during its absence  
except when it comes childhood  
unpleasantries haunting you most;  
thrust your fist against the post  
too often for too long and you will  
insist you see the ghost as if
it were yesterday because  
It never takes much effort
to send in the clown  
especially when touring  
an old hometown  
you supposedly left  
behind for good
