Mask to mask


I saw mask to mask faceless
Yet
Each mask had a face
Specific
And in the faceless mask
There was beauty
There was beauty of the gaudy
There was beauty of the painted
Yet it was beauty
All the same, beauty.

Dancing
The masks
For it was deepening
Night
And
It was dark
Deepening:
Dancing
Dancing
Mask to mask
And
The more night grew deep
As in direct proportion
The number of the mask to
Mask did leap.

For
I saw mask to mask faceless
Yet
Each mask had a face
Specific
And in the faceless mask
There was beauty
There was beauty of the gaudy
There was beauty of the painted
Yet it was beauty
All the same, beauty.
