Motionless

The street performer stands motionless on the sidewalk near the library steps.  He is dressed in a black suit with long tails, and a matching tophat adorns his head.  His hands are covered by white silk gloves.  His left hand is frozen in the middle of a wave, while the right is pointed towards a glass jar filled with money from passerbyers.

He has been still for over a day.  Everyone that has seen him agrees it is an amazing feat.

It would be several more days before anyone notices the smell of death coming from him.
