Mask

And so you keep on composing a dirge
rescinding back into the rip tide
being magnetized by uncanny powers
oh what malevolent measures
enraptured our envisions
as we wore a terrific mask
all thought we were harlequins
but behind the dimly lit glass window
are the mere projections of insidious trepidation
with elf-like levity we tread lightly on the forest leaves
whilst children beg for candy
we are walking for the first time
like a cripple without a cane
in the broad shining daylight
the joke was on everyone
