Masking Life 

I
The Face
producer of expressions
holder of in and out looks
through which life pours
screening entire existences

II
The Face
presenter of plot lines
wrinkles in the story
viewpoints of the eyes
blue brown gray green

III
The Face
connector of Beings
assessor of feelings
embracer of contacts
deliverer of rejects

IV
The Face
now a protector
masked against strife
a connections reflector
holding onto life

V
The Face
eyes speak
hold one another
above ever-bigger masks
saying what isn't said
