NaPoWriMo 27 (mask)

elastic loose around a
wrist;
elaborate depiction still
in progress.
every brushstroke
bleeds into another.

the depiction
hardens, colder now –
utterly,
heartbreakingly
flawless.

apply it like
a crown –
assume nobility,
play at ice.

(break the mold)

destroy the blueprint;
this time around
we are each
other.
give me an identity
not my own –
take mine, a loan
of goodwill.

look in the mirror
flawed though it is.
see me,
instead of you.
(or do you still see
yourself?)

let me see now –
no, i’m blurring the
lines of reality now.
i can’t tell who
i am now.
(i’ve always known)
