Painted mask
of the tragic
clown, hiding
in plain sight
as he jests
and cavorts,
clever words
deflecting life,
until the spotlight
goes dark,
the curtain
goes down
and the mask
washes away.

  1. Like the poem…made me recall a conversation recently where someone noted that fear of clouds is the second most common fear in England…found that quite surprising….enjoyed your poem.
