We want to shed

The masks

But you won’t let us


Maybe we show

Our true selves

Now and then

But go unseen


Maybe if we didn’t

Wear a mask

You’d make one

And staple it on


With pins through eyebrows

Hooks in mouth

Stapled to ears

And laugh at our protestations

I printed this out and taped it to my door. I think it's gonna be my theme poem for a while.

Maybe I'll print out another copy and put it in my book bag, too.
