October 2011 – Masks & Disguises

Ever-shifting mask
now I see you, now I don’t;
have I ever really?
~Harlean

you, salty, smoky;
robed in cheese, onions, mushrooms
bacon, you can’t hide.
~Liz
continuing her run of blending
Bacon with all other topics

pumpkins and witches
evil tricks or else sweet treats
hidden behind mask
~SassySue

papier-mache mask
modeled after happiness
unbreakable grin
~dragonfly

best night of the year;
I get to have purple hair
AND I get candy
~quirks

this month Halloween
for fun will dress as drag queen
or paint face in green
~SassySue

scary beings walk
from one house to another
while witches “trick or treat”
to fill their bags with goodies
wear a mask to go “guising”
~dragonfly

Face to cover face
Not sure which one is the truth
Hidden or revealed?
~Paul W.

How do I know you?
I sense something familiar.
Show me the real you.
~Natasha

Rip down the facade
disguises for protection
nude and shattered soul
~Cricket LaFaux

my face is revealed
though my heart masked and hidden
bloody and broken
~SassySue

scots go “guising”
while jack o’ lanterns haunt
and masked marauders trick
~dragonfly

me or maybe not
I wear a mask you can’t break
don’t bother trying
~Anonymous

Which mask choses us?
Seductive lies call to us
expose secret truths
~Etre
