Thin Line

A tiny girl on the roadside;
walks on a rope hung ten feet high.
A long bamboo for balance-
onlookers pause, cheer and sigh.

Back and forth she walks for living-
like finger rolls on guitar’s string.
Below, a bowl awaits soup-
which wobbles with occasional dings.

Hunger beguiles.
Trots on thin line.
