Masquerading Senryu in 2020

by Kristina Woodhill



after Mardi Gras
I notice you've not removed
your frightening mask
___________________

you now lock and load
prepare to defend your freedoms
words cough with bullets
________________________

neighbor mocks my mask
ignores my concerned big eyes
now I see his heart
________________________

our hidden wide smiles
as we pass inside the store
eyes learn how to hug

As appropriate and splendid a metaphor as misappropriated brains can afford, such luxury as a concerned and informed heart as is your quill, and skill to rapt my soul.
