Self-Portrait of a Foreigner in Honduras

Clown appears in doorway
steps into street, laughs
adjusts costume, goes out
into dusty sunlight
sidewalks stare or smile
or snicker at the gait that
says ancient but goes quickly
to some destination

Funnyface could use some
paint from bright walls
needs
some kind brush for application

There are no tools here but one:
hunger

Clown cannot find a way
for its purchase
