Masks and bones

Photo by Dan Fraser

All the masks and faces fall

and fade

all the lures and hooks lose

their lustre

there is no explosion

only the hiss of air leaking

from the tires of life

old bones wear new clothes

till even the clothes grow old

different eyes see different lights

and move on

scarred of living

tired of trying
