That mask

IMG_4194.JPG

I can fly above clouds
with nothing for wings
save the warm honesty
in your giggles so long as
they bare their souls
unabashedly, unwilling
to hide behind that mask
we all carry at the ready,
waiting for an excuse
to paint a different picture,
to shine a different light,
less harsh, more flattering,
in colors we’ll never know.
