the emblazoned sign
to all who passed by

Capture your essence
with pen and acid free paper
for posterity
or at least a giggle
with family and friends

The dark haired artist
wearing a black beret
and black and white striped t-shirt
images of Paris
and buskers on the River Seine

With his moustache
perfectly coiffed
into matching curls
he sat on his stool
quietly reading

I tried to observe
from a distance
and although his eyes
appeared to be focused
on the pages before him
I felt
he clearly saw me
and knew
I was there
