The Depression of a Mime

Living totally within
a box of perfect glass
an old sad-faced mime
reaching slowly to touch
a flower, a face, anything
but forever just failing
to really get sense of feeling
outside of the round dullness
or only quick flashes of happiness
through the window or open door
is closed again turning outside in
and breathing old thoughts wrought
of doubt and worthlessness
