My mask – 100 Word Wednesday: Week 37


THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Good Shape” by Esther Cohen: look, writing, tell, enormous, drawing, elsewhere, jackets, long, think, flat, see, you

Now you see me, now you do not
A fantasy, I’m sure it’s naught
With my mask I could be elsewhere
Look! Everyone’s here to stare
Tell you what, I think I could go around the plot

I drew an enormous green head
With my long jacket as I sped
Wrote my name in one minute flat
Did not have time to have our chat
I was in a hurry to bake my gingerbread

Painting my mask is such a treat
Pretending is such a new feat
All the things I need for new me
Don’t be scared or angry*

  1. Lovely response to the image prompt — I love seeing all the different perspectives and am awed by poets who employ so many different techniques of imagery to really bring the writing to life. Thank you for joining us again this week 🙂
