Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. Leonard Cohen

mASK me
I can be anyone you want, just
mASK me
I can be naughty or nice
Sweet or nasty
Your angel or
your whore
It's really all the same
Treat me however you wish
Pretend you don't know my name
Know my shame vanishes under the mask
So mASK me.

inspired by a glance around our local Halloween costume store in the Women's section, where every costume, it seemed, was overtly sexual and provocative

I like the way you did that: "mAsk".

This caught me so unaware. So naked, so vulnerable, so smart. Love love loved this.

Happy Halloween.

I often wonder why it's gotten to that - vamp a derivative of vampire. ~ M

Great thoughts!! I do seem to notice that most women's costumes are very slutty now. I don't remember it always being this way or am I just getting older?
