Times Square philosopher

Gestureman

Attitude angular

Sweeping silent silhouettes

In restless sleep

Gestureman

Clowning with collapsing feet

Pulsing hands and prowling eyes

Let me lean

Gestureman

Jabbing and jutting

Elbows fingers shoulders

Rolling hips and bending waist

Each thought a shrug.

Gestureman?

Times Square enigma beside the microscope
