Bianca, a loner amongst cats. Had been returned several times “for not fitting in’ to her adoptive families.   I wonder what she would be like, if all her life she could have been true to her self, and not have to “fit in”, even at her original home.  She seems to feel she has to be super obedient, and not play or be curious  as cats do without prompting.

My interpretation of “mummer” for this haiku is
is   “an inauthentic self”.

=============================

Is your world a stage
where everyone wears a mask
Or just you that hides
.
You hide your secrets
Thinking everyone will laugh
 leaving you alone
.                                                               
Do they know your name
Is your world a private stage
Stage of one, lonely
