A Man with a Hat

There is a man
Strolling along the pavement.
He smiles at you.
Do you hear his walking stick meeting the stones?


He touches his hat
It is old and made of felt
With a feather so long it tickles your nose.
Can you smell the dust?


He makes his hat disappear
In a puff of smoke
Revealing yellow curls underneath
Can you taste the burnt air?


It seems you were tricked;
The air is clear
And the man has no walking stick as he continues on his way,
But he tips his top hat at you as he leaves your brain.
