Who Am I?

Who am I?, Margaret Mair, Original art

Who am I?, Margaret Mair, Original art

Who am I?
Which mask suits you?
This is a time
For masks,
For hiding behind
This smile,
That inscrutable expression,
That wooden face.
No, you will not see
Me here.
That crack
Lets the light in
That makes the shadow
That hides me
From the seeing,
The questioning,
The wondering
In your eyes.
 
Yes, this is a time
For masks.
How else should we
Safely hide
Our selves?
